SubjectRe: [PATCH for 4.18 2/6] rseq: use get_user/put_user rather than __get_user/__put_user

So, another twist to this story: ppc32 does not implement u64 get_user().

I am tempted to ditch this patch (leaving the __get_user()/__put_user as is
for 32-bit accesses), and simply use __copy_from_user()/__copy_to_user() to
load/store the rseq_cs pointer. Considering that we don't need to load/store
the rseq_cs field with single-copy atomicity from the kernel anymore, it
should be fine.

Any objection ?

commit: 23d0f99d280fa97ebcf8b915157468f457bc6e11 [4/21] rseq: uapi: declare rseq_cs field as union, update includes
config: powerpc-ppc6xx_defconfig (attached as .config)
compiler: powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc (Debian 7.2.0-11) 7.2.0
reproduce:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/intel/lkp-tests/master/sbin/make.cross -O ~/bin/make.cross
chmod +x ~/bin/make.cross
git checkout 23d0f99d280fa97ebcf8b915157468f457bc6e11
# save the attached .config to linux build tree
GCC_VERSION=7.2.0 make.cross ARCH=powerpc

All errors (new ones prefixed by >>):

kernel/rseq.o: In function `__rseq_handle_notify_resume':
>> (.text+0x648): undefined reference to `__get_user_bad'
