mn10300/misalignment: Use SIGSEGV SEGV_MAPERR to report a failed user copy

Setting si_code to 0 is the same a setting si_code to SI_USER which is definitely
not correct.  With si_code set to SI_USER si_pid and si_uid will be copied to
userspace instead of si_addr.  Which is very wrong.

So fix this by using a sensible si_code (SEGV_MAPERR) for this failure.
