powerpc/ftrace: Implement raw syscall tracepoints on PowerPC
This patch implements the raw syscall tracepoints on PowerPC and exports them for ftrace syscalls to use. To minimise reworking existing code, I slightly re-ordered the thread info flags such that the new TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT bit would still fit within the 16 bits of the andi. instruction's UI field. The instructions in question are in /arch/powerpc/kernel/entry_{32,64}.S to and the _TIF_SYSCALL_T_OR_A with the thread flags to see if system call tracing is enabled. In the case of 64bit PowerPC, arch_syscall_addr and arch_syscall_match_sym_name are overridden to allow ftrace syscalls to work given the unusual system call table structure and symbol names that start with a period.
