Wire up the rseq system call on powerpc.

This provides an ABI improving the speed of a user-space getcpu
operation on powerpc by skipping the getcpu system call on the fast
path, as well as improving the speed of user-space operations on per-cpu
data compared to using load-reservation/store-conditional atomics.
