Subject: [PATCH] uapi: futex: Add a futex syscall

From: Alistair Francis <alistair.francis@....com>

This commit adds two futex syscall wrappers that are exposed to
userspace.

Neither the kernel or glibc currently expose a futex wrapper, so
userspace is left performing raw syscalls. This has mostly been becuase
the overloading of one of the arguments makes it impossible to provide a
single type safe function.

Until recently the single syscall has worked fine. With the introduction
of a 64-bit time_t futex call on 32-bit architectures, this has become
more complex. The logic of handling the two possible futex syscalls is
complex and often implemented incorrectly.

This patch adds two futux syscall functions that correctly handle the
time_t complexity for userspace.

This idea is based on previous discussions: https://lkml.org/lkml/2021/9/21/143
