ARM: kill CONFIG_SET_FS
This is set of patches to kill set_fs() on the ARM architecture, as part
of the broader effort described at https://lwn.net/Articles/832121/
I have tested the oabi-compat changes using the LTP tests for the three
modified syscalls using an Armv7 kernel and a Debian 5 OABI user space.
I also tested the syscall_get_nr() in all combinations of OABI/EABI
kernel user space and fixed the bugs I found after Russell pointed out
one of those issues.
ARM: uaccess: remove set_fs() implementation
There are no remaining callers of set_fs(), so just remove it
along with all associated code that operates on
There are still further optimizations that can be done:
- In get_user(), the address check could be moved entirely
into the out of line code, rather than passing a constant
as an argument,
- I assume the DACR handling can be simplified as we now
only change it during user access when CONFIG_CPU_SW_DOMAIN_PAN
is set, but not during set_fs().
