Subject[PATCH] Revert "x86/ptrace: Prevent ptrace from clearing the FS/GS selector" and fix the test
Date
This reverts commit 48f5e52e916b55fb73754833efbacc7f8081a159.

The ptrace ABI change was a prerequisite to the proposed design for
FSGSBASE. Since FSGSBASE support has been reverted, and since I'm
not convinced that the ABI was ever adequately tested, revert the
ABI change as well.

This also modifies the test case so that it tests the preexisting
behavior.
