ARM: 8781/1: Fix Thumb-2 syscall return for binutils 2.29+

When building the kernel as Thumb-2 with binutils 2.29 or newer, if the
assembler has seen the .type directive (via ENDPROC()) for a symbol, it
automatically handles the setting of the lowest bit when the symbol is
used with ADR.  The badr macro on the other hand handles this lowest bit
manually.  This leads to a jump to a wrong address in the wrong state
in the syscall return path:

 Internal error: Oops - undefined instruction: 0 [#2] SMP THUMB2

To fix this, add a new symbol name which doesn't have ENDPROC used on it
and use that with badr.  We can't remove the badr usage since that would
would cause breakage with older binutils.
