Why isn't rt_sigreturn() exempt from that redirection in the first place?

A big combo patch is not how we do that. Please split it up into the
core part and a patch enabling it for a particular architexture.

As I said in my reply to Andy, this wants to go on top of the generic
entry/exit work stuff:

  https://lore.kernel.org/r/20200716182208.180916541@linutronix.de

and then syscall_user_dispatch.c ends up in kernel/entry/ and the
dispatching function is not exposed outside of that directory.

I'm going to post a new version later today. Will cc you.

There are two other things out there which compete about the last TIF
bits on x86, so we need to clean that up first.

__get_user() mandates an explicit access_ok() which happened in the
prctl(). So this wants a comment why there is none right here.

If that happens its going to be quite interesting to debug.

Also please use proper defines which are exposed to user space instead
of 0/1.

  sizeof(*selector)
