Use udf as the guard instruction for the restartable sequence abort
handler.

Previously, the chosen signature was not a valid instruction, based
on the assumption that it could always sit in a literal pool. However,
there are compilation environments in which literal pools are not
availble, for instance execute-only code. Therefore, we need to
choose a signature value that is also a valid instruction.

Handle compiling with -mbig-endian on ARMv6+, which generates binaries
with mixed code vs data endianness (little endian code, big endian
data).

Else mismatch between code endianness for the generated signatures and
data endianness for the RSEQ_SIG parameter passed to the rseq
registration will trigger application segmentation faults when the
kernel try to abort rseq critical sections.

Prior to ARMv6, -mbig-endian generates big-endian code and data, so
endianness should not be reversed in that case.

+/*
+ * RSEQ_SIG uses the udf A32 instruction with an uncommon immediate operand
+ * value 0x5de3. This traps if user-space reaches this instruction by mistake,
+ * and the uncommon operand ensures the kernel does not move the instruction
+ * pointer to attacker-controlled code on rseq abort.
+ *
+ * The instruction pattern in the A32 instruction set is:
+ *
+ * e7f5def3    udf    #24035    ; 0x5de3
+ *
+ * This translates to the following instruction pattern in the T16 instruction
+ * set:
+ *
+ * little endian:
+ * def3        udf    #243      ; 0xf3
+ * e7f5        b.n    <7f5>
+ *
+ * pre-ARMv6 big endian code:
+ * e7f5        b.n    <7f5>
+ * def3        udf    #243      ; 0xf3
+ *
+ * ARMv6+ -mbig-endian generates mixed endianness code vs data: little-endian
+ * code and big-endian data. Ensure the RSEQ_SIG data signature matches code
+ * endianness. Prior to ARMv6, -mbig-endian generates big-endian code and data
+ * (which match), so there is no need to reverse the endianness of the data
+ * representation of the signature. However, the choice between BE32 and BE8
+ * is done by the linker, so we cannot know whether code and data endianness
+ * will be mixed before the linker is invoked.
