For arm64 tagged addresses we need the diff below, otherwise the
subsequent find_vma() will fail:

diff --git a/mm/gup.c b/mm/gup.c
index f5f362cb4640..2c51e9748a6a 100644
--- a/mm/gup.c
+++ b/mm/gup.c
@@ -1713,7 +1713,7 @@ EXPORT_SYMBOL(fault_in_writeable);
*/
size_t fault_in_safe_writeable(const char __user *uaddr, size_t size)
{
- unsigned long start = (unsigned long)uaddr;
+ unsigned long start = (unsigned long)untagged_addr(uaddr);
unsigned long end, nstart, nend;
struct mm_struct *mm = current->mm;
struct vm_area_struct *vma = NULL;
