Subject[PATCH v17 06/15] mm, arm64: untag user pointers in get_vaddr_frames
This patch is a part of a series that extends arm64 kernel ABI to allow to
pass tagged user pointers (with the top byte set to something else other
than 0x00) as syscall arguments.

get_vaddr_frames uses provided user pointers for vma lookups, which can
only by done with untagged pointers. Instead of locating and changing
all callers of this function, perform untagging in it.
