[RFC PATCH for 4.18 08/23] powerpc: Wire up restartable sequences system call




From: Boqun Feng <boqun.feng@xxxxxxxxx>

Wire up the rseq system call on powerpc.

This provides an ABI improving the speed of a user-space getcpu
operation on powerpc 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-reservation/store-conditional atomics.

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
section
