Based on advice from Will Deacon, I alternatively tried to add a new TIF_RSEQ thread
flags, but unfortunately bits 1 through 8 are already used, and this is all that fits
in an immediate operand on arm32 for the fast-path thread flag syscall work mask check
in assembly.

So considering that this is a kernel debug option, I took the approach of adding a
call at the very beginning of return from syscall fast and slow paths, which is only
compiled in if CONFIG_DEBUG_RSEQ=y.

Does the following approach make sense ?


arm: Add syscall detection for restartable sequences

Syscalls are not allowed inside restartable sequences, so add a call to
rseq_syscall() at the very beginning of system call exiting path for
CONFIG_DEBUG_RSEQ=y kernel. This could help us to detect whether there
is a syscall issued inside restartable sequences.
