arm64: entry: remove unused register aliases
In commit: 3b7142752e4bee15 ("arm64: convert native/compat syscall entry to C") ... we moved the syscall invocation code from assembly to C, but left behind a number of register aliases which are now unused. Let's remove them before they confuse someone.
