m68k: Define asmlinkage_protect
Make sure the compiler does not modify arguments of syscall functions. This can happen if the compiler generates a tailcall to another function. For example, without asmlinkage_protect sys_openat is compiled into this function: sys_openat: clr.l %d0 move.w 18(%sp),%d0 move.l %d0,16(%sp) jbra do_sys_open Note how the fourth argument is modified in place, modifying the register %d4 that gets restored from this stack slot when the function returns to user-space. The caller may expect the register to be unmodified across system calls.
