[PATCH v2 2/6] ptrace: introduce ptrace_syscall_enter to consolidate PTRACE_SYSEMU handling

Currently each architecture handles PTRACE_SYSEMU in very similar way.
It's completely arch independent and can be handled in the code helping
to consolidate PTRACE_SYSEMU handling.

Let's introduce a hook 'ptrace_syscall_enter' that arch specific syscall
entry code can call.
