arm64: mm: update CONTEXTIDR register to contain PID of current process

This patch is a port of 575320d6 ("ARM: 7445/1: mm: update CONTEXTIDR
register to contain PID of current process") from ARM that introduces a
new Kconfig option which, when enabled, causes the kernel to write the
PID of the current task into the CONTEXTIDR register on context switch.
This is useful when analysing hardware trace, since writes to this
register can be configured to emit an event into the trace stream.

Enabling this option causes the kernel to write the current PID to
the CONTEXTIDR register, at the expense of some additional
instructions during context switch. Say Y here only if you are
planning to use hardware trace tools with this kernel.
