[PATCH 1/4] MIPS/seccomp: Fix indirect syscall args

Since commit 669c4092225f ("MIPS: Give __secure_computing() access to
syscall arguments."), upon syscall entry when seccomp is enabled,
syscall_trace_enter() passes a carefully prepared struct seccomp_data
containing syscall arguments to __secure_computing(). Unfortunately it
directly uses mips_get_syscall_arg() and fails to take into account the
indirect O32 system calls (i.e. syscall(2)) which put the system call
number in a0 and have the arguments shifted up by one entry.

We can't just revert that commit as samples/bpf/tracex5 would break
again, so use syscall_get_arguments() which already takes indirect
syscalls into account instead of directly using mips_get_syscall_arg(),
similar to what populate_seccomp_data() does.

This also removes the redundant error checking of the
mips_get_syscall_arg() return value (get_user() already zeroes the
result if an argument from the stack can't be loaded).

It would have been much simpler for MIPS arch code to just pass a NULL
seccomp_data to secure_computing() so populate_seccomp_data() would take
care of fetching arguments, as it did for MIPS prior to commit
669c4092225f ("MIPS: Give __secure_computing() access to syscall
arguments."), but as that commit mentions it breaks samples/bpf/tracex5,
which relies on sd being non-NULL at entry to __seccomp_filter().

Arguably the samples/bpf/tracex5 test is flawed, at least for every arch
except x86 (and now MIPS).
