syscalls/core: Introduce CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER=y
It may be useful for an architecture to override the definitions of the SYSCALL_DEFINE0() and __SYSCALL_DEFINEx() macros in <linux/syscalls.h>, in particular to use a different calling convention for syscalls. This patch provides a mechanism to do so: It introduces CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER. If it is enabled, <asm/sycall_wrapper.h> is included in <linux/syscalls.h> and may be used to define the macros mentioned above. Moreover, as the syscall calling convention may be different if CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER is set, the syscall function prototypes in <linux/syscalls.h> are #ifndef'd out in that case.
