Subject[PATCH 1/2] mm: add probe_user_read() and probe_user_address()
Date
In the powerpc, there are several places implementing safe
access to user data. This is sometimes implemented using
probe_kernel_address() with additional access_ok() verification,
sometimes with get_user() enclosed in a pagefault_disable()/enable()
pair, etc... :
show_user_instructions()
bad_stack_expansion()
p9_hmi_special_emu()
fsl_pci_mcheck_exception()
read_user_stack_64()
read_user_stack_32() on PPC64
read_user_stack_32() on PPC32
power_pmu_bhrb_to()

In the same spirit as probe_kernel_read() and probe_kernel_address(),
this patch adds probe_user_read() and probe_user_address().

probe_user_read() does the same as probe_kernel_read() but
first checks that it is really a user address.

probe_user_address() is a shortcut to probe_user_read()

Changes since RFC: Made a static inline function instead of weak function as recommended by Kees.
