perf/x86_64: Improve user regs sampling

Perf reports user regs for kernel-mode samples so that samples can
be backtraced through user code.  The old code was very broken in
syscall context, resulting in useless backtraces.

The new code, in contrast, is still dangerously racy, but it should
at least work most of the time.
