Above and this, I was trying to avoid an empty arch_file on other architectures.
In previous proposal the entry only exists on the platform with AVX512.

I was trying to address Andy's last comments. If we have the prototype in
include/linux/proc_fs.h, we'll have a weak function definition in fs/proc/array.c,
which bloats other architectures.

In that way proc_task_arch_status() should be defined in asm/processor.h,
but proc_task_arch_status() has four parameters, I don't want unnecessary
"struct pid_namespace *ns" and "struct pid *pid" leaked into arch headers,
so I defined task_arch_status(m, task) to avoid that.
