fs: add do_compat_signalfd4() helper; remove in-kernel call to compat syscall
Using the fs-internal do_compat_signalfd4() helper allows us to get rid of the fs-internal call to the compat_sys_signalfd4() syscall. This patch is part of a series which removes in-kernel calls to syscalls. On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined.
