Subject[PATCH 3.18 13/85] arm64: ptrace: remove addr_limit manipulation
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

[ Upstream commit 59275a0c037ed6fabd6354730f1e3104264ab719 ]

We transiently switch to KERNEL_DS in compat_ptrace_gethbpregs() and
compat_ptrace_sethbpregs(), but in either case this is pointless as we
don't perform any uaccess during this window.

let's rip out the redundant addr_limit manipulation.
