x86-32: Fix endless loop when processing signals for kernel tasks

The problem occurs on !CONFIG_VM86 kernels [1] when a kernel-mode task
returns from a system call with a pending signal.

A real-life scenario is a child of 'khelper' returning from a failed
kernel_execve() in ____call_usermodehelper() [ kernel/kmod.c ].
kernel_execve() fails due to a pending SIGKILL, which is the result of
"kill -9 -1" (at least, busybox's init does it upon reboot).

The loop is as follows:

* syscall_exit_work:
 - work_pending:            // start_of_the_loop
 - work_notify_sig:
   - do_notify_resume()
     - do_signal()
       - if (!user_mode(regs)) return;
 - resume_userspace         // TIF_SIGPENDING is still set
 - work_pending             // so we call work_pending => goto
                            // start_of_the_loop

More information can be found in another LKML thread:

[1] the problem was also seen on MIPS.
