Some architectures modify syscall numbers to indicate ABI used
and as a result syscall number as returned by syscall_get_nr
does not correspond to the syscall number used inside the kernel.
Allow an arch to provide a separate implementation for ftrace
that returns the 'real' syscall number from the regs provided.

This will be used by x86 in a follow-up change.
