[RFC PATCH v3 08/12] lib: vdso: allow arches to provide vdso data pointer

On powerpc, __arch_get_vdso_data() clobbers the link register,
requiring the caller to save it.

As the parent function already has to set a stack frame and saves
the link register before calling the C vdso function, retriving the
vdso data pointer there is lighter.

Give arches the opportunity to hand the vdso data pointer
to C vdso functions.
