x86/pkru: Write hardware init value to PKRU when xstate is init

When user space brings PKRU into init state, then the kernel handling is

  T1 user space
     state.header.xfeatures &= ~XFEATURE_MASK_PKRU;

  T1 -> kernel
       XSAVE(S) -> T1->xsave.header.xfeatures[PKRU] == 0
       T1->flags |= TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD;


       pk = get_xsave_addr(&T1->fpu->state.xsave, XFEATURE_PKRU);
       if (pk)

Because the xfeatures bit is 0 and therefore the value in the xsave
storage is not valid, get_xsave_addr() returns NULL and switch_to()
writes the default PKRU. -> FAIL #1!

So that wrecks any copy_to/from_user() on the way back to user space
which hits memory which is protected by the default PKRU value.

Assumed that this does not fail (pure luck) then T1 goes back to user
space and because TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD is set it ends up in

        if (!fpregs_state_valid()) {

But if nothing touched the FPU between T1 scheduling out and back in,
then the fpregs_state is still valid which means switch_fpu_return()
does nothing and just clears TIF_NEED_FPU_LOAD. Back to user space with
DEFAULT_PKRU loaded. -> FAIL #2!

The fix is simple: if get_xsave_addr() returns NULL then set the
PKRU value to 0 instead of the restrictive default PKRU value in

 [ bp: Massage in minor nitpicks from folks. ]
