Subject: [PATCH bpf-next 1/5] bpf, x64: use %rcx instead of %rax for tail call retpolines

Currently, %rax is used to store the jump target when BPF program is
emitting the retpoline instructions that are handling the indirect
tailcall.

There is a plan to use %rax for different purpose, which is storing the
tail call counter. In order to preserve this value across the tailcalls,
use %rcx instead for jump target storage in retpoline instructions.
