x86_64, traps: Stop using IST for #SS

commit 6f442be2fb22be02cafa606f1769fa1e6f894441 upstream.

On a 32-bit kernel, this has no effect, since there are no IST stacks.

On a 64-bit kernel, #SS can only happen in user code, on a failed iret
to user space, a canonical violation on access via RSP or RBP, or a
genuine stack segment violation in 32-bit kernel code.  The first two
cases don't need IST, and the latter two cases are unlikely fatal bugs,
and promoting them to double faults would be fine.

This fixes a bug in which the espfix64 code mishandles a stack segment

This saves 4k of memory per CPU and a tiny bit of code.
