Ard Biesheuvel March 10, 2018, 3:21 p.m.
Add support macros to conditionally yield the NEON (and thus the CPU)
that may be called from the assembler code.

In some cases, yielding the NEON involves saving and restoring a non
trivial amount of context (especially in the CRC folding algorithms),
and so the macro is split into three, and the code in between is only
executed when the yield path is taken, allowing the context to be preserved.
The third macro takes an optional label argument that marks the resume
path after a yield has been performed.

+ *
+ * The yield itself consists of the following:
+ * - Check whether the preempt count is exactly 1, in which case disabling
+ *   preemption once will make the task preemptible. If this is not the case,
+ *   yielding is pointless.
+ * - Check whether TIF_NEED_RESCHED is set, and if so, disable and re-enable
+ *   kernel mode NEON (which will trigger a reschedule), and branch to the
+ *   yield fixup code.
+ *
+ * This macro sequence clobbers x0, x1 and the flags register unconditionally,
+ * and may clobber x2 .. x18 if the yield path is taken.
