Subject: kfence, x86: fix preemptible warning on KPTI-enabled systems

On systems with KPTI enabled, we can currently observe the following
warning:

  BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible
  caller is invalidate_user_asid+0x13/0x50
  CPU: 6 PID: 1075 Comm: dmesg Not tainted 5.12.0-rc4-gda4a2b1a5479-kfence_1+ #1
  Hardware name: Hewlett-Packard HP Pro 3500 Series/2ABF, BIOS 8.11 10/24/2012
  Call Trace:
   dump_stack+0x7f/0xad
   check_preemption_disabled+0xc8/0xd0
   invalidate_user_asid+0x13/0x50
   flush_tlb_one_kernel+0x5/0x20
   kfence_protect+0x56/0x80
   ...

While it normally makes sense to require preemption to be off, so that the
expected CPU's TLB is flushed and not another, in our case it really is
best-effort (see comments in kfence_protect_page()).

Avoid the warning by disabling preemption around flush_tlb_one_kernel().
