Putting on my mm maintainer hat for a moment, I really think that we
want oopses to print PKRS along with all the other registers when we
inevitably oops due to a page fault.  And we probably also want it in
the nasty nested case where we get infinite page faults and eventually
double fault.

I'm sure it's *possible* to wire this up if we stick it in
idtentry_state, but it's trivial if we stick it in pt_regs.  I'm okay
with doing the save/restore in C (in fact, I prefer that), but I think
that either the value should be stuck in pt_regs or we should find a
way to teach the unwinder to locate idtentry_state.

And, if we go with idtentry_state, we should make a signature change
to nmi_enter() to also provide idtentry_state or some equivalent
object.
