parisc: fix fanotify_mark() syscall on 32bit compat kernel
On parisc we can not use the existing compat implementation for fanotify_mark() because for the 64bit mask parameter the higher and lower 32bits are ordered differently than what the compat function expects from big endian architectures. Specifically: It finally turned out, that on hppa we end up with different assignments of parameters to kernel arguments depending on if we call the glibc wrapper function int fanotify_mark (int __fanotify_fd, unsigned int __flags, uint64_t __mask, int __dfd, const char *__pathname); or directly calling the syscall manually syscall(__NR_fanotify_mark, ...) Reason is, that the syscall() function is implemented as C-function and because we now have the sysno as first parameter in front of the other parameters the compiler will unexpectedly add an empty paramenter in front of the u64 value to ensure the correct calling alignment for 64bit values. This means, on hppa you can't simply use syscall() to call the kernel fanotify_mark() function directly, but you have to use the glibc function instead. This patch fixes the kernel in the hppa-arch specifc coding to adjust the parameters in a way as if userspace calls the glibc wrapper function fanotify_mark().
