OK, so for today, I have reverted these commits from Al's signal tree:

c1eafa6fc84a "arm: pull all work_pending logics into C function"
9c802c169f96 "arm: deal with handlerless restarts without leaving the kernel"
76c3f4da3ee4 "arm: get rid of TIF_SYSCALL_RESTARTSYS"

(I was not sure if I needed to revert the first of these.)
