Subject[PATCH v1 3/4] sched_setattr: switch to copy_struct_from_user()
Date
The change is very straightforward, and helps unify the syscall
interface for struct-from-userspace syscalls. Ideally we could also
unify sched_getattr(2)-style syscalls as well, but unfortunately the
correct semantics for such syscalls are much less clear (see [1] for
more detail). In future we could come up with a more sane idea for how
the syscall interface should look.

[1]: commit 1251201c0d34 ("sched/core: Fix uclamp ABI bug, clean up and
robustify sched_read_attr() ABI logic and code")
