Subject[patch 2/2] c/r: prctl: Add ability to get clear_tid_address
Zero is written at clear_tid_address, when
the process exits. This functionality is used
by pthread_join().

We already have sys_set_tid_address() to change this
address for current task but there is no way to obtain
it from a user space.

Without ability to find this address and dump it we can't
restore pthread'ed apps which do call pthread_join() once
they have been restored.

This patch introduces PR_GET_TID_ADDRESS prctl option
which allow current process to obtain own clear_tid_address.

This feature is available iif CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is set.
