tracing/syscalls: Allow arch specific syscall symbol matching

Some architectures have unusual symbol names and the generic code to
match the symbol name with the function name for the syscall metadata
will fail. For example, symbols on PPC64 start with a period and the
generic code will fail to match them.

This patch moves the match logic out into a separate function which an
arch can override by defining ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_MATCH_SYM_NAME in
asm/ftrace.h and implementing arch_syscall_match_sym_name.

- If the system call table on this arch is more complicated than a simple array
of addresses of the system calls, implement an arch_syscall_addr to return
the address of a given system call.
+- If the symbol names of the system calls do not match the function names on
+ this arch, define ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_MATCH_SYM_NAME in asm/ftrace.h and

+ true if the function name corresponds with the symbol name.
- Tag this arch as HAVE_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINTS.
