[RFC PATCH for 4.15 04/14] Restartable sequences: wire up ARM 32 system call




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.
