A set of fixes for X86:

 - Prevent sending the wrong signal when protection keys are enabled and
   the kernel handles a fault in the vsyscall emulation.

 - Invoke early_reserve_memory() before invoking e820_memory_setup() which
   is required to make the Xen dom0 e820 hooks work correctly.

 - Use the correct data type for the SETZ operand in the EMQCMDS
   instruction wrapper.

 - Prevent undefined behaviour to the potential unaligned accesss in the
   instroction decoder library.
x86/insn, tools/x86: Fix undefined behavior due to potential unaligned accesses

Don't perform unaligned loads in __get_next() and __peek_nbyte_next() as
these are forms of undefined behavior:

"A pointer to an object or incomplete type may be converted to a pointer
to a different object or incomplete type. If the resulting pointer
is not correctly aligned for the pointed-to type, the behavior is

These problems were identified using the undefined behavior sanitizer
(ubsan) with the tools version of the code and perf test.
