tracing/syscalls: Allow archs to ignore tracing compat syscalls

The tracing of ia32 compat system calls has been a bit of a pain as they
use different system call numbers than the 64bit equivalents.

I wrote a simple 'lls' program that lists files. I compiled it as a i686
ELF binary and ran it under a x86_64 box. This is the result:

echo 0 > /debug/tracing/tracing_on
echo 1 > /debug/tracing/events/syscalls/enable
echo 1 > /debug/tracing/tracing_on ; ./lls ; echo 0 > /debug/tracing/tracing_on

grep lls /debug/tracing/trace

[.. skipping calls before TS_COMPAT is set ...]

Obviously I'm not calling newfstat with a fd of 4d55b085. The calls are
obviously incorrect, and confusing.

Other efforts have been made to fix this:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/3/26/367

But the real solution is to rewrite the syscall internals and come up
with a fixed solution. One that doesn't require all the kluge that the
current solution has.

Thus for now, instead of outputting incorrect data, simply ignore them.
With this patch the changes now have:

 #> grep lls /debug/tracing/trace
 #>

Compat system calls simply are not traced. If users need compat
syscalls, then they should just use the raw syscall tracepoints.

For an architecture to make their compat syscalls ignored, it must
define ARCH_TRACE_IGNORE_COMPAT_SYSCALLS (done in asm/ftrace.h) and also
define an arch_trace_is_compat_syscall() function that will return true
if the current task should ignore tracing the syscall.

I want to stress that this change does not affect actual syscalls in any
way, shape or form. It is only used within the tracing system and
doesn't interfere with the syscall logic at all. The changes are
consolidated nicely into trace_syscalls.c and asm/ftrace.h.

I had to make one small modification to asm/thread_info.h and that was
to remove the include of asm/ftrace.h. As asm/ftrace.h required the
current_thread_info() it was causing include hell. That include was
added back in 2008 when the function graph tracer was added:

 commit caf4b323 "tracing, x86: add low level support for ftrace return tracing"

It does not need to be included there.
