Subject[PATCH 1/4] x86/syscalls: Use the compat versions of rt_sigsuspend() and rt_sigprocmask()
I'm working on some code that detects at build time if there's a
COMPAT_SYSCALL_DEFINE() that is not referenced in the x86 syscall
tables. It catches three offenders: rt_sigsuspend(),
rt_sigprocmask(), and sendfile64().

For rt_sigsuspend() and rt_sigprocmask(), the only potential
difference between the native and compat versions is that the compat
version converts the sigset_t, but, on little endian architectures,
the conversion is a no-op. This is why they both currently work on

To make the code more consistent, and to make my upcoming patches
work, this patch rewires x86 to use the compat vesions.

sendfile64() is more complicated, and I'll address it separately.
