The point of ENTRY_FUNCTION is to write the entry point in C. Due to
lack of __naked on ARM64, the start of the entry point will have prologue
using stack and it's not possible to set up the stack safely without
branching into non-inline assembly[0]. On ARM32, where we got __naked, we
have the potential for a different problem: If BootROM sets up stack for
us and we branch to a naked function, which doesn't set up its own
stack, compiler may decide to spill local variables overwriting
instructions it had already run[1].

For code reuse between ARM and ARM64, it would be nice to use the same
entry point structure for both. Currently, the only way is to write it
in non-inline assembly using the ENTRY_PROC macro.

This introduces another way: the ARM64 barebox header has enough space
for 8 instructions of which 5 are unused (2 instructions compiler prologue
+ 1 instruction to jump after the header), we could place a stack setup
routine there to avoid having to write a separate assembly file.
For ARM32, we just call arm_setup_stack and branch out directly after,
freeing board porters of the burden of getting it right.

Add a new ENTRY_FUNCTION_WITHSTACK to realize this.
