tracing/syscalls: Ignore numbers outside NR_syscalls' range

commit 086ba77a6db00ed858ff07451bedee197df868c9 upstream.

ARM has some private syscalls (for example, set_tls(2)) which lie
outside the range of NR_syscalls.  If any of these are called while
syscall tracing is being performed, out-of-bounds array access will
occur in the ftrace and perf sys_{enter,exit} handlers.

Fix this by ignoring out-of-NR_syscalls-bounds syscall numbers.

Commit cd0980fc8add "tracing: Check invalid syscall nr while tracing syscalls"
added the check for less than zero, but it should have also checked
for greater than NR_syscalls.
