kdb: Gid rid of implicit setting of the current task / regs
Some (but not all?) of the kdb backtrace paths would cause the kdb_current_task and kdb_current_regs to remain changed. As discussed in a review of a previous patch [1], this doesn't seem intuitive, so let's fix that. ...but, it turns out that there's actually no longer any reason to set the current task / current regs while backtracing anymore anyway. As of commit 2277b492582d ("kdb: Fix stack crawling on 'running' CPUs that aren't the master") if we're backtracing on a task running on a CPU we ask that CPU to do the backtrace itself. Linux can do that without anything fancy. If we're doing backtrace on a sleeping task we can also do that fine without updating globals. So this patch mostly just turns into deleting a bunch of code.
