Subject[patch 3/6] [SPARC64]: Fix ptrace/strace
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Richard Mortimer <richm@oldelvet.org.uk>
Don't clobber register %l0 while checking TI_SYS_NOERROR value in
syscall return path. This bug was introduced by:

db7d9a4eb700be766cc9f29241483dbb1e748832

Problem narrowed down by Luis F. Ortiz and Richard Mortimer.

I tried using %l2 as suggested by Luis and that works for me.

Looking at the code I wonder if it makes sense to simplify the code
a little bit. The following works for me but I'm not sure how to
exercise the "NOERROR" codepath.
