Previously if a Protection key fault occurred it indicated something
very wrong because user page mappings are not supposed to be in the
kernel address space.

Now PKey faults may happen on kernel mappings if the feature is enabled.

Remove the warning in the fault path and allow the oops to occur without
extra debugging if PKS is enabled.
