arch/tile: make ptrace() work properly for TILE-Gx COMPAT mode
Previously, we tried to pass 64-bit arguments through the "COMPAT" mode 32-bit syscall API, which turned out not to work well. Now we just use straight 32-bit arguments in COMPAT mode, thus requiring individual registers to be read/written with two syscalls. Of course this is uncommon, since usually all the registers are read or written at once. The restructuring applies to all the tile platforms, but is plausibly better than the original code in any case. Signed-off-by: Chris Metcalf <cmetcalf@tilera.com>
