can you pretty please not add that to anything which is not going
through kernel/entry/ ?

The amount of duplicated and differently buggy, inconsistent and
incomplete code in syscall and exception handling is just annoying.

It's perfectly fine if we keep that #ifdeffery around for a while and
encourage arch folks to move over to the generic infrastructure instead
of proliferating the status quo by adding this to their existing pile.

The #ifdef guarding this in set_notify_signal() and other core code
places wants to be:

    #if defined(CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY) && defined(TIF_NOTIFY_SIGNAL)
