arm64: Fix __arch_get_hw_counter() implementation

Provide the following fixes for the __arch_get_hw_counter()
implementation on arm64:
- Fallback on syscall when an unstable counter is detected.
- Introduce isb()s before and after the counter read to avoid
speculation of the counter value and of the seq lock
respectively.
The second isb() is a temporary solution that will be revisited
in 5.3-rc1.

These fixes restore the semantics that __arch_counter_get_cntvct()
had on arm64.
