Subject[PATCH 2/6] uaccess: add untagged_addr definition for other arches
To allow arm64 syscalls accept tagged pointers from userspace, we must
untag them when they are passed to the kernel. Since untagging is done in
generic parts of the kernel (like the mm subsystem), the untagged_addr
macro should be defined for all architectures.

Define it as a noop for other architectures besides arm64.
