arm64: compat: Avoid sending SIGILL for unallocated syscall numbers
The ARM Linux kernel handles the EABI syscall numbers as follows: 0 - NR_SYSCALLS-1 : Invoke syscall via syscall table NR_SYSCALLS - 0xeffff : -ENOSYS (to be allocated in future) 0xf0000 - 0xf07ff : Private syscall or -ENOSYS if not allocated > 0xf07ff : SIGILL Our compat code gets this wrong and ends up sending SIGILL in response to all syscalls greater than NR_SYSCALLS which have a value greater than 0x7ff in the bottom 16 bits. Fix this by defining the end of the ARM private syscall region and checking the syscall number against that directly. Update the comment while we're at it.
