context_tracking: Protect against recursion

Context tracking recursion can happen when an exception triggers
in the middle of a call to a context tracking probe.

This special case can be caused by vmalloc faults. If an access
to a memory area allocated by vmalloc happens in the middle of
context_tracking_enter(), we may run into an endless fault loop
because the exception in turn calls context_tracking_enter()
which faults on the same vmalloc'ed memory, triggering an
exception again, etc...

Some rare crashes have been reported so lets protect against
this with a recursion counter.
