    ms/x86/signal: Remove bogus user_64bit_mode() check from sigaction_compat_abi()
    Fix for 32-bit C/R patches
    There is backport of mainstream fix for 32-bit C/R patches.
    Backport it as it fixes x32 support (do not confuse with ia32 support).
    Not sure if anyone uses x32 - it's quite rare thing, but anyway,
    let's have it.
    The recent introduction of SA_X32/IA32 sa_flags added a check for
    user_64bit_mode() into sigaction_compat_abi(). user_64bit_mode() is true
    for native 64-bit processes and x32 processes.
    Due to that the function returns w/o setting the SA_X32_ABI flag for X32
    processes. In consequence the kernel attempts to deliver the signal to the
    X32 process in native 64-bit mode causing the process to segfault.
    Remove the check, so the actual check for X32 mode which sets the ABI flag
    can be reached. There is no side effect for native 64-bit mode.
