Subject: [PATCH RFC v7 3/6] x86/entry: Erase kernel stack in syscall_trace_enter()

Make STACKLEAK erase kernel stack after ptrace/seccomp/auditing
not to leave any sensitive information on the stack for the syscall code.

This code is modified from Brad Spengler/PaX Team's code in the last
public patch of grsecurity/PaX based on our understanding of the code.
Changes or omissions from the original code are ours and don't reflect
the original grsecurity/PaX code.
