  The new __riscv_hwprobe() function is designed to be used by ifunc
selector functions. This presents a challenge for applications and
libraries, as ifunc selectors are invoked before all relocations have
been performed, so an external call to __riscv_hwprobe() from an ifunc
selector won't work. To address this, pass a pointer to the
__riscv_hwprobe() vDSO function into ifunc selectors as the second
argument (alongside dl_hwcap, which was already being passed).

Include a typedef as well for convenience, so that ifunc users don't
have to go through contortions to call this routine. Users will need to
remember to check the second argument for NULL, both to account for
older glibcs that don't pass the function, and older kernels that don't
have the vDSO pointer.

(no changes since v7)

Changes in v7:
 - Remove __THROW from function pointer type, as it creates warnings
   together with __fortified_attr_access.
