Subject: [PATCH v2 36/36] x86/entry: Split and inline syscall_return_slowpath

GCC is unable to properly optimize functions that have a very short
likely case and a longer and register-heavier cold part -- it fails
to sink all of the register saving and stack frame setup code into
the unlikely part.

Help it out with syscall_return_slowpath by splitting it into two
parts and inline the hot part.

Saves 6 cycles for compat syscalls.
