Subject[PATCH] aio: Fix io_pgetevents() struct __compat_aio_sigset layout
Date
This type is used to pass the sigset_t from userland to the kernel,
but it was using the kernel native pointer type for the member
representing the compat userland pointer to the userland sigset_t.

This messes up the layout, and makes the kernel eat up both the
userland pointer and the size members into the kernel pointer, and
then reads garbage into the kernel sigsetsize. Which makes the sigset_t
size consistency check fail, and consequently the syscall always
returns -EINVAL.

This breaks both libaio and strace on 32-bit userland running on 64-bit
kernels. And there are apparently no users in the wild of the current
broken layout (at least according to codesearch.debian.org and a brief
check over github.com search). So it looks safe to fix this directly
in the kernel, instead of either letting userland deal with this
permanently with the additional overhead or trying to make the syscall
infer what layout userland used, even though this is also being worked
around in libaio to temporarily cope with kernels that have not yet
been fixed.

We use a proper compat_uptr_t instead of a compat_sigset_t pointer.
