Here're the last pieces of page fault accounting that were still done outside
handle_mm_fault() where we still have regs==NULL when calling handle_mm_fault():

arch/powerpc/mm/copro_fault.c:   copro_handle_mm_fault
arch/sparc/mm/fault_32.c:        force_user_fault
arch/um/kernel/trap.c:           handle_page_fault
mm/gup.c:                        faultin_page
                                 fixup_user_fault
mm/hmm.c:                        hmm_vma_fault
mm/ksm.c:                        break_ksm

Some of them has the issue of duplicated accounting for page fault retries.
Some of them didn't do the accounting at all.

This patch cleans all these up by letting handle_mm_fault() to do per-task page
fault accounting even if regs==NULL (though we'll still skip the perf event
accountings).  With that, we can safely remove all the outliers now.

There's another functional change in that now we account the page faults to the
caller of gup, rather than the task_struct that passed into the gup code.  More
information of this can be found at [1].

After this patch, below things should never be touched again outside
handle_mm_fault():

  - task_struct.[maj|min]_flt
  - PERF_COUNT_SW_PAGE_FAULTS_[MAJ|MIN]
