x86/fpu/xsaves: Fix improper uses of __ex_table

Commit:

  f31a9f7c7169 ("x86/xsaves: Use xsaves/xrstors to save and restore xsave area")

introduced alternative instructions for XSAVES/XRSTORS and commit:

  adb9d526e982 ("x86/xsaves: Add xsaves and xrstors support for booting time")

added support for the XSAVES/XRSTORS instructions at boot time.

Unfortunately both failed to properly protect them against faulting:

The 'xstate_fault' macro will use the closest label named '1'
backward and that ends up in the .altinstr_replacement section
rather than in .text. This means that the kernel will never find
in the __ex_table the .text address where this instruction might
fault, leading to serious problems if userspace manages to
trigger the fault.
