arm64: implement syscall wrappers
To minimize the risk of userspace-controlled values being used under speculation, this patch adds pt_regs based syscall wrappers for arm64, which pass the minimum set of required userspace values to syscall implementations. For each syscall, a wrapper which takes a pt_regs argument is automatically generated, and this extracts the arguments before calling the "real" syscall implementation. Each syscall has three functions generated: * __do_<compat_>sys_<name> is the "real" syscall implementation, with the expected prototype. * __se_<compat_>sys_<name> is the sign-extension/narrowing wrapper, inherited from common code. This takes a series of long parameters, casting each to the requisite types required by the "real" syscall implementation in __do_<compat_>sys_<name>. This wrapper *may* not be necessary on arm64 given the AAPCS rules on unused register bits, but it seemed safer to keep the wrapper for now. * __arm64_<compat_>_sys_<name> takes a struct pt_regs pointer, and extracts *only* the relevant register values, passing these on to the __se_<compat_>sys_<name> wrapper. The syscall invocation code is updated to handle the calling convention required by __arm64_<compat_>_sys_<name>, and passes a single struct pt_regs pointer. The compiler can fold the syscall implementation and its wrappers, such that the overhead of this approach is minimized. Note that we play games with sys_ni_syscall(). It can't be defined with SYSCALL_DEFINE0() because we must avoid the possibility of error injection. Additionally, there are a couple of locations where we need to call it from C code, and we don't (currently) have a ksys_ni_syscall(). While it has no wrapper, passing in a redundant pt_regs pointer is benign per the AAPCS. When ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER is selected, no prototype is defines for sys_ni_syscall(). Since we need to treat it differently for in-kernel calls and the syscall tables, the prototype is defined as-required. The wrappers are largely the same as their x86 counterparts, but simplified as we don't have a variety of compat calling conventions that require separate stubs. Unlike x86, we have some zero-argument compat syscalls, and must define COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE0() to ensure that these are also given an __arm64_compat_sys_ prefix.
