commit 1962682d2b2fbe6cfa995a85c53c069fadda473e upstream.

Stop printing a (ratelimited) kernel message for each instance of an
unimplemented syscall being called. Userland making an unimplemented
syscall is not necessarily misbehaviour and to be expected with a
current userland running on an older kernel. Also, the current message
looks scary to users but does not actually indicate a real problem nor
help them narrow down the cause. Just rely on sys_ni_syscall() to return

This was backported to v4.14 and later, but is missing in v4.4 and
before, apparently because of a trivial merge conflict. This is
a manual backport I did after I saw a report about the issue
by Martin Vajnar on the musl mailing list.
