Subject: [PATCH bpf 1/3] bpf: restrict bpf_probe_read{,str}() only to archs where they work

Given the legacy bpf_probe_read{,str}() BPF helpers are broken on archs
with overlapping address ranges, we should really take the next step to
disable them from BPF use there.

To generally fix the situation, we've recently added new helper variants
bpf_probe_read_{user,kernel}() and bpf_probe_read_{user,kernel}_str().
For details on them, see 6ae08ae3dea2 ("bpf: Add probe_read_{user, kernel}
and probe_read_{user,kernel}_str helpers").

Given bpf_probe_read{,str}() have been around for ~5 years by now, there
are plenty of users at least on x86 still relying on them today, so we
cannot remove them entirely w/o breaking the BPF tracing ecosystem.

However, their use should be restricted to archs with non-overlapping
address ranges where they are working in their current form. Therefore,
move this behind a CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_NON_OVERLAPPING_ADDRESS_SPACE and
have x86, arm64, arm select it (other archs supporting it can follow-up
on it as well).
