mm/uaccess: Use 'unsigned long' to placate UBSAN warnings on older GCC versions

Randy reported objtool triggered on his (GCC-7.4) build:

  lib/strncpy_from_user.o: warning: objtool: strncpy_from_user()+0x315: call to __ubsan_handle_add_overflow() with UACCESS enabled
  lib/strnlen_user.o: warning: objtool: strnlen_user()+0x337: call to __ubsan_handle_sub_overflow() with UACCESS enabled

This is due to UBSAN generating signed-overflow-UB warnings where it
should not. Prior to GCC-8 UBSAN ignored -fwrapv (which the kernel
uses through -fno-strict-overflow).

Make the functions use 'unsigned long' throughout.
