arm64: kernel: Add support for User Access Override
'User Access Override' is a new ARMv8.2 feature which allows the unprivileged load and store instructions to be overridden to behave in the normal way. This patch converts {get,put}_user() and friends to use ldtr*/sttr* instructions - so that they can only access EL0 memory, then enables UAO when fs==KERNEL_DS so that these functions can access kernel memory. This allows user space's read/write permissions to be checked against the page tables, instead of testing addr<USER_DS, then using the kernel's read/write permissions.
