arm64 can take an NMI-like error notification when user-space steps in
some corrupt memory. APEI's GHES code will call memory_failure_queue()
to schedule the recovery work. We then return to user-space, possibly
taking the fault again.

Currently the arch code unconditionally signals user-space from this
path, so we don't get stuck in this loop, but the affected process
never benefits from memory_failure()s recovery work. To fix this we
need to know the recovery work will run before we get back to user-space.

Increase the priority of the recovery work by scheduling it on the
system_highpri_wq, then try to bump the current task off this CPU
so that the recovery work starts immediately.
