mm/tlb: Provide default nmi_uaccess_okay()

x86 has an nmi_uaccess_okay(), but other architectures do not.
Arch-independent code might need to know whether access to user
addresses is ok in an NMI context or in other code whose execution
context is unknown.  Specifically, this function is needed for

Add a default implementation of nmi_uaccess_okay() for architectures
that do not have such a function.
