Commit 4255b07f2c9c43540 ("ARCv2: STAR 9000793984: Handle return
from intr to Delay Slot") involved a complex 2 staged trampoline.

Apparently this can be greatly simplified by returning from pure
kernel mode (vs interrupt) so drop to pute kernel mdoe and execute the
normal exception return path.

Note that after commit 4de0e52867d83105767 ("ARCv2: STAR 9000814690:
Really Re-enable interrupts to avoid deadlocks") the pur einterrupt
return path is rarely exercised for normal interrupts so this return to
delay slot via interrupt becomes extreemely hard to hit (and test),
so my local test setup had that revert to validate this fix.
