I think we should migrate TIF_SINGLESTEP to a SYSCALL_WORK flag as that
is just a simple refactor. I can get a patch to you and Thomas during
the first part of the week, for the next -rc. I will also review the x86
version of ARCH_SYSCALL_EXIT WORK to make sure i didn't miss anything

Reverting would be slightly be annoying as it requires reverting syscall
user dispatch as well.
