flag parameters: timerfd_create

The timerfd_create syscall already has a flags parameter.  It just is
unused so far.  This patch changes this by introducing the TFD_CLOEXEC
flag to set the close-on-exec flag for the returned file descriptor.

A new name TFD_CLOEXEC is introduced which in this implementation must
have the same value as O_CLOEXEC.

The following test must be adjusted for architectures other than x86 and
x86-64 and in case the syscall numbers changed.
