powerpc: Syscall hooks for context tracking subsystem
This is the syscall slow path hooks for context tracking subsystem, corresponding to [PATCH] x86: Syscall hooks for userspace RCU extended QS commit bf5a3c13b939813d28ce26c01425054c740d6731 TIF_MEMDIE is moved to the second 16-bits (with value 17), as it seems there is no asm code using it. TIF_NOHZ is added to _TIF_SYCALL_T_OR_A, so it is better for it to be in the same 16 bits with others in the group, so in the asm code, andi. with this group could work.
