Well I didn't really thought about it yet, but the sysarch() mechanism lost
its interest now, I was just pondering keeping it to provide a costly but
working way to handle the tp in the unlikely situation where someone would
want to do that on a SMP system with CPUs that can't lock cache line.
I have nothing aginst ARM_SET_TP changing ARM_TP_ADDRESS, but it doesn't matter
much since userland tools can mess with ARM_TP_ADDRESS directly.
