Subject: [RFC PATCH for 5.8 2/4] rseq: Introduce RSEQ_FLAG_REGISTER

Introduce RSEQ_FLAG_REGISTER with the same behavior as the flag value
"0". The main advantage of introducing this flag as a non-zero (1 << 1)
value is that it can be combined with other flags to register and check
for features with a single system call. Considering that this system
call needs to be performed for each new thread in glibc, minimize the
amount of overhead required.

This is needed for introducing a new RSEQ_FLAG_RELIABLE_CPU_ID flag in a
later change.
