Hey,

This is v3 of this patchset.

This fixes a braino spotted by Oleg (/me tips proverbial hat) and splits
the implementation of close_range() into adding the actual syscall and
the wiring-up of the syscall itself as requested by Arnd. It also adds a
missing bump of __NR_compat_syscalls for arm64 that Arnd spotted.

For controversy around whether or not this is the greatest idea and api
ever I refer the avid reader to the comment section of LWN.

/* v2 */
In accordance with some comments by Linus and Al there's a
cond_resched() added to the close loop similar to what is done for
close_files().

A common helper pick_file() for __close_fd() and __close_range() has
been split out. This allows to only make a cond_resched() call when
filp_close() has been called similar to what is done in close_files().
Maybe that's not worth it. Jann mentioned that cond_resched() looks
rather cheap.

So it maybe that we could simply do:

while (fd <= max_fd) {
       __close_fd(files, fd++);
       cond_resched();
}

I also added a missing test for close_range(fd, fd, 0).

Thanks!
Christian
