commit 574e2b5111e13827da501771b27d92e6e3f2e3d7 upstream

In case of BE8 kernel data is in BE order whereas code stays in LE
order. Move sigreturn_codes to separate .S file and use proper
assembler mnemonics for these code snippets. In this case compiler
will take care of proper instructions byteswaps for BE8 case.
Change assumes that sufficiently Thumb-capable tools are used to
build kernel.

Problem was discovered during ltp testing of BE system: all rt_sig*
tests failed. Tested against the same tests in both BE and LE modes.

[shengyong: backport to 3.10:
 - adjust context
 - since we don't have 38ff87f77af0b5a93fc8581cff1d6e5692ab8970,
   which makes sched_clock generic and does not impact on BE8,
   arch/arm/kernel/Makefile is adjusted.
 - After the above adjustments, becomes same to the original patch:
   https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/574e2b5111e13827da501771b27d92e6e3f2e3d7
