    riscv: add asm/unistd.h UAPI header

    Marcin Juszkiewicz reported issues while generating syscall table for riscv
    using 4.20-rc1. The patch refactors our unistd.h files to match some other

    - Add asm/unistd.h UAPI header, which has __ARCH_WANT_NEW_STAT only for 64-bit
    - Remove asm/syscalls.h UAPI header and merge to asm/unistd.h
    - Adjust kernel asm/unistd.h

    So now asm/unistd.h UAPI header should show all syscalls for riscv.

<asm/syscalls.h> may be restored by

Subject: [PATCH] riscv: restore asm/syscalls.h UAPI header
Date: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 09:09:35 +0100

UAPI header asm/syscalls.h was merged into UAPI asm/unistd.h header,
which did resolve issue with missing syscalls macros resulting in
glibc (2.28) build failure. It also broke glibc in a different way:
asm/syscalls.h is being used by glibc. I noticed this while doing
Fedora 30/Rawhide mass rebuild.

The patch returns asm/syscalls.h header and incl. it into asm/unistd.h.
I plan to send a patch to glibc to use asm/unistd.h instead of

In the meantime, we use __has_include__, which was added to GCC 5, to
check if <asm/syscalls.h> exists before including it.  Tested with for riscv against kernel 4.19.12 and 4.20-rc7.
