When build perf for ARC recently, there was a build failure due to lack
of __NR_bpf.

| Auto-detecting system features:
|
| ...                     get_cpuid: [ OFF ]
| ...                           bpf: [ on  ]
|
| #  error __NR_bpf not defined. libbpf does not support your arch.
    ^~~~~
| bpf.c: In function 'sys_bpf':
| bpf.c:66:17: error: '__NR_bpf' undeclared (first use in this function)
|  return syscall(__NR_bpf, cmd, attr, size);
|                 ^~~~~~~~
|                 sys_bpf

The fix is to define a fallbak __NR_bpf.

The obvious fix with be __arc__ specific value, but i think a better fix
is to use the asm-generic uapi value applicable to ARC as well as any new
arch (hopefully we don't add an old existing arch here). Otherwise I can
just add __arc__

I prefer explicitly guard with __arc__. We still have arm/sh with different
__NR_bpf values. This patch will give wrong bpf syscall values for these
two architectures.

Alternatively, you could add support for arm/sh together
with your current patch. Hopefully I did not miss other architectures.
