The assembler macros in syscall template for generating wrappers use
__syscall_error (sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/arc/sysdep.h).

If public Version is removed, I get errors like below:

| arc-glibc-linux-gnu-gcc   -shared -static-libgcc -Wl,-O1  -Wl,-z,defs -Wl,
| -dynamic-linker=/lib/ld-linux-arc.so.2  -Wl,--version-script=/SCRATCH/vgupta
| /gnu/build/glibcs/arc-linux-gnu/glibc/librt.map -Wl,-soname=librt.so.1
|
| ...
| a - mq_setattr.o
| a - librt-cancellation.o
| /SCRATCH/vgupta/gnu/install/compilers/arc-linux-gnu/lib/gcc/arc-glibc-linux-
| gnu/10.0.1/../../../../arc-glibc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: /SCRATCH/vgupta/gnu/build
| /glibcs/arc-linux-gnu/glibc/rt/librt_pic.a(mq_setattr.os): in function
| `mq_setattr':
| /SCRATCH/vgupta/gnu/src/glibc/rt/../sysdeps/unix/syscall-template.S:80:
| undefined reference to `__syscall_error'

And this change goes back to initial port (in 2016) where openssh/libcrypt.so was
failing to link somewhat similarly.

Looking as RISCV code, they opencode __syscall_error for !IS_IN (libc) which I was
hoping to avoid.
