HAVE_FTRACE_SYSCALLS
---------------------

-<details to be filled>
+You need very few things to get the syscalls tracing in an arch.
+
+- Have a NR_syscalls variable in <asm/unistd.h> that provides the number
+ of syscalls supported by the arch.
+- Implement arch_syscall_addr() that resolves a syscall address from a
+ syscall number.
+- Support the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT thread flags
+- Put the trace_sys_enter() and trace_sys_exit() tracepoints calls from ptrace
+ in the ptrace syscalls tracing path.
+- Tag this arch as HAVE_FTRACE_SYSCALLS.
