[PATCH] AArch64: Fix handling of nocancel syscall failures

The current code for nocancel syscalls does not do a comparison of
the system call return value. This leads to code being generated
where the b.cs follows the svc instruction directly without setting
the flags on which the branch depends.

	Test the return value of the system call in the nocancel case.

Note that I suspect the reason I saw this issue was due to some change in
the way sysdep-cancel.h is getting included which may or may not be
