If we interrupted a preemptible context, do_sea() is preemptible too... This means we
can't know if we're still running on the same CPU as the one that took the external-abort.
(until this series, it hasn't mattered).

Fixing this means cramming something into entry.S's el1_da, as this may unmask interrupts
before calling do_mem_abort(). But its going to be ugly because some of do_mem_abort()s
ESR values need to be preemptible because they sleep, e.g. page-faults calling
handle_mm_fault().
For do_sea(), do_exit() will 'fix' the preempt count if we kill the thread, but if we
don't, it still needs to be balanced. Doing all this in assembly is going to be unreadable!

Mark Rutland has a series to move the entry assembly into C [0]. Based on that that it
should be possible for the new el1_abort() to spot a Synchronous-External-Abort ESR, and
wrap the do_mem_abort() with preempt enable/disable, before inheriting the flags. (which
for synchronous exceptions, I think we should always do)


Thanks,

James
