[PATCH v5 0/3] arm64: Add seccomp support

(Please apply this patch after my audit patch in order to avoid some
conflict on arm64/Kconfig.)

This patch enables secure computing (system call filtering) on arm64.
System calls can be allowed or denied by loaded bpf-style rules.
Architecture specific part is to run secure_computing() on syscall entry
and check the result. See [3/3]

Prerequisites are:
 * "arm64: Add audit support" patch

This code is tested on ARMv8 fast model using
 * libseccomp v2.1.1 with modifications for arm64 and verified by its "live"
   tests, 20, 21 and 24.
 * modified version of Kees' seccomp test for 'changing/skipping a syscall'

Changes v4 -> v5:
* rebased to v3.16-rc
* add patch [1/3] to allow ptrace to change a system call
  (please note that this patch should be applied even without seccomp.)

Changes v3 -> v4:
* removed the following patch and moved it to "arm64: prerequisites for
  audit and ftrace" patchset since it is required for audit and ftrace in
  case of !COMPAT, too.
  "arm64: is_compat_task is defined both in asm/compat.h and linux/compat.h"

Changes v2 -> v3:
* removed unnecessary 'type cast' operations [2/3]
* check for a return value (-1) of secure_computing() explicitly [2/3]
* aligned with the patch, "arm64: split syscall_trace() into separate
  functions for enter/exit" [2/3]
* changed default of CONFIG_SECCOMP to n [2/3]

Changes v1 -> v2:
* added generic seccomp.h for arm64 to utilize it [1,2/3] 
* changed syscall_trace() to return more meaningful value (-EPERM)
  on seccomp failure case [2/3]
* aligned with the change in "arm64: make a single hook to syscall_trace()
  for all syscall features" v2 [2/3]
* removed is_compat_task() definition from compat.h [3/3]
