It's desirable to be able to reset the vector length to some sane
default for new processes, since the new binary and its libraries
processes may or may not be SVE-aware.

This patch tracks the desired post-exec vector length (if any) in a
new thread member sve_vl_onexec, and adds a new thread flag
TIF_SVE_VL_INHERIT to control whether to inherit or reset the
vector length.  Currently these are inactive.  Subsequent patches
will provide the capability to configure them.
