The arm64 kernel doesn't yet support the full generic entry
infrastructure. That being said, KVM/arm64 doesn't properly handle
TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME and could pick this up by switching to the generic
guest entry infrasturture.

Patch 1 adds a missing vCPU stat to ARM64 to record the number of signal
exits to userspace.

Patch 2 unhitches entry-kvm from entry-generic, as ARM64 doesn't
currently support the generic infrastructure.

Patch 3 replaces the open-coded entry handling with the generic xfer
function.

This series was tested on an Ampere Mt. Jade reference system. The
series cleanly applies to kvm/queue (note that this is deliberate as the
generic kvm stats patches have not yet propagated to kvm-arm/queue) at
the following commit:

8ad5e63649ff ("KVM: Don't take mmu_lock for range invalidation unless necessary")

v1 -> v2:
 - Address Jing's comment
 - Carry Jing's r-b tag

v2 -> v3:
 - Roll all exit conditions into kvm_vcpu_exit_request() (Marc)
 - Avoid needlessly checking for work twice (Marc)

v2: http://lore.kernel.org/r/20210729220916.1672875-1-oupton@google.com
