Subject: [PATCH 2/8] syscalls: introduce CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_SYSCALL_WRAPPER

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.
