Recently we encounter multi #MC on the same task when it's
task_work_run() has not been called, current->mce_kill_me was
added to task_works list more than once, that make a circular
linked task_works, so task_work_run() will do a endless loop.

More seriously, the SIGBUS signal can not be delivered to the
userspace task which tigger the #MC and I met #MC flood.

I borrowed mce_kill_me.func to check whether current->mce_kill_me
has been added to task_works, prevent duplicate addition. When
work function be called, the task_works must has been taken,
so it is safe to be cleared in callback.

Fixed: commit 5567d11c21a1 ("x86/mce: Send #MC singal from task work")
