I don't _love_ the #ifdefs in here, but they look correct and there's
not really a better option until we rewrite the syscall handler in C.

The rseq selftests passed for me with this applied and enabled. So if
you like here's some tags:

Tested-by: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>
Acked-by: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

cheers
