  Fix handling of external interrupts: we weren't calling ast() when
  interrupting user mode. The net effect of this bug is that a clock
  interrupt does not cause rescheduling and processes are not
  preempted. It only takes a "while (1);" to render the machine
  This bug was introduced by the context changes and EPC syscall code.
  Handling of ASTs was moved to C for clarity and ease of maintenance,
  but was not added for the external interrupt case.
  This needs to be revisited. We now have calls to do_ast() in trap(),
  break_syscall() and ivt_External_Interrupt(). A single call in
  exception_restore covers these 3 places without duplication. This
  is where we handled ASTs prior to the overhaul, except that the
  meat has been moved to do_ast(), a C function. This was the goal
  to begin with.
