ARM: 8226/1: cacheflush: get rid of restarting block



We cannot restart cacheflush safely if a process provides user-defined
signal handler and signal is pending. In this case -EINTR is returned
and it is expected that process re-invokes syscall. However, there are
a few problems with that:
 * looks like nobody bothers checking return value from cacheflush
 * but if it did, we don't provide the restart address for that, so the
   process has to use the same range again
 * ...and again, what might lead to looping forever

So, remove cacheflush restarting code and terminate cache flushing
as early as fatal signal is pending.
