Subject[RFC PATCH v2 11/13] powerpc/syscall: Avoid stack frame in likely part of syscall_call_exception()
Date
When r3 is not modified, reload it from regs->orig_r3 to free
volatile registers. This avoids a stack frame for the likely part
of syscall_call_exception()

Before : 353 cycles on null_syscall
After : 347 cycles on null_syscall
