Subject[PATCH] fs/fcntl: Fix F_GET/SETLK etc. for compat processes
Commit 8c6657cb50cb ("Switch flock copyin/copyout primitives to
copy_{from,to}_user()") added copy_flock_fields(from, to), but then in all cases
called it with arguments of (to, from). eg:

static int get_compat_flock(struct flock *kfl, struct compat_flock __user *ufl)
struct compat_flock fl;

if (copy_from_user(&fl, ufl, sizeof(struct compat_flock)))
return -EFAULT;
copy_flock_fields(*kfl, fl);
return 0;

We are reading the compat_flock ufl from userspace, into flock kfl. First we
copy all of ufl into fl on the stack, and then we want to assign each field of
fl to kfl. So we are copying from fl and to kfl. But as written the
copy_flock_fields() macro takes the arguments in the other order.

copy_to/from_user() take "to" as the first argument, so change the order of
arguments in the copy_flock_fields() macro, rather than changing the callers.

Fixes: 8c6657cb50cb ("Switch flock copyin/copyout primitives to copy_{from,to}_user()")
