rseq: Remove superfluous rseq_len from task_struct

The rseq system call, when invoked with flags of "0" or
"RSEQ_FLAG_UNREGISTER" values, expects the rseq_len parameter to
be equal to sizeof(struct rseq), which is fixed-size and fixed-layout,
specified in uapi linux/rseq.h.

Expecting a fixed size for rseq_len is a design choice that ensures
multiple libraries and application defining __rseq_abi in the same
process agree on its exact size.

Considering that this size is and will always be the same value, there
is no point in saving this value within task_struct rseq_len. Remove
this field from task_struct.

No change in functionality intended.
