tracing/syscalls: Make arch_syscall_addr weak

Some architectures use non-trivial system call tables and will not work
with the generic arch_syscall_addr code. For example, PowerPC64 uses a
table of twin long longs.

This patch makes the generic arch_syscall_addr weak to allow
architectures with non-trivial system call tables to override it.

- Support the TIF_SYSCALL_TRACEPOINT thread flags.
- Put the trace_sys_enter() and trace_sys_exit() tracepoints calls from ptrace
in the ptrace syscalls tracing path.
- If the system call table on this arch is more complicated than a simple array
of addresses of the system calls, implement an arch_syscall_addr to return
the address of a given system call.
