[PATCH 04/14] arm: Wire up restartable sequences system call

From: Mathieu Desnoyers
Date: Mon Apr 30 2018 - 18:48:13 EST

Wire up the rseq system call on 32-bit ARM.

This provides an ABI improving the speed of a user-space getcpu
operation on ARM by skipping the getcpu system call on the fast path, as
well as improving the speed of user-space operations on per-cpu data
compared to using load-linked/store-conditional.

TODO: wire up rseq_syscall() on return from system call. It is used with
CONFIG_DEBUG_RSEQ=y to ensure system calls are not issued within rseq critical
