[RFC PATCH v4 07/11] powerpc/vdso: provide vdso data pointer from the ASM caller.

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

As the ASM calling 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.

The improvement is significant:

Before:
gettimeofday:    vdso: 1212 nsec/call
clock-getres-realtime-coarse:    vdso: 714 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime-coarse:    vdso: 784 nsec/call
clock-getres-realtime:    vdso: 714 nsec/call

After:
gettimeofday:    vdso: 1094 nsec/call
getcpu:    vdso: not tested
clock-getres-realtime-coarse:    vdso: 545 nsec/call
clock-gettime-realtime-coarse:    vdso: 584 nsec/call
clock-getres-realtime:    vdso: 545 nsec/call
