[RFC PATCH 08/10] arm64/sve: ptrace: Wire up vector length control and reporting

This patch adds support for manipulating a task's vector length at
runtime via ptrace.

As a simplification, we turn the task back into an FPSIMD-only task
when changing the vector length.  If the register data is written
too, we then turn the task back into an SVE task, with changed
task_struct layout for the SVE data, before the actual data writing
is done.

Because the vector length is now variable, sve_get() now needs to
return the real maximum for user_sve_header.max_vl, since .vl may
be less than this (that's the whole point).
