x86: Make __put_user() generate an out-of-line call

Instead of inlining the stac/mov/clac sequence (which also requires
individual exception table entries and several asm instruction
alternatives entries), just generate "call __put_user_nocheck_X" for the
__put_user() cases, the same way we changed __get_user earlier.

Unlike the get_user() case, we didn't have the same nice infrastructure
to just generate the call with a single case, so this actually has to
change some of the infrastructure in order to do this.  But that only
cleans up the code further.

So now, instead of using a case statement for the sizes, we just do the
same thing we've done on the get_user() side for a long time: use the
size as an immediate constant to the asm, and generate the asm that way

In order to handle the special case of 64-bit data on a 32-bit kernel, I
needed to change the calling convention slightly: the data is passed in
%eax[:%edx], the pointer in %ecx, and the return value is also returned
in %ecx.  It used to be returned in %eax, but because of how %eax can
now be a double register input, we don't want mix that with a
single-register output.

The actual low-level asm is easier to handle: we'll just share the code
between the checking and non-checking case, with the non-checking case
jumping into the middle of the function.  That may sound a bit too
special, but this code is all very very special anyway, so...
