s390: fix system call restart with multiple signals
glibc complained with "The futex facility returned an unexpected error code.". It turned out that the futex syscall returned -ERESTARTSYS because a signal is pending. arch_do_signal_or_restart() restored the syscall parameters (nameley regs->gprs[2]) and set PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART. When another signal is made pending later in the exit loop arch_do_signal_or_restart() is called again. This function clears PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART and checks the return code which is set in regs->gprs[2]. However, regs->gprs[2] was restored in the previous run and no longer contains -ERESTARTSYS, so PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART isn't set again and the syscall is skipped. Fix this by not clearing PIF_SYSCALL_RESTART - it is already cleared in __do_syscall() when the syscall is restarted.
