Subject[patch 12/33] Fix compat sys_ipc() on sparc64
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: David Miller <>

The 32-bit syscall trampoline for sys_ipc() on sparc64
was sign extending various arguments, which is bogus when
using compat_sys_ipc() since that function expects zero
extended copies of all the arguments.

This bug breaks the sparc64 kernel when built with gcc-4.2.x
among other things.

[SPARC64]: Fix arg passing to compat_sys_ipc().

Do not sign extend args using the sys32_ipc stub, that is
buggy and unnecessary.

Based upon an excellent report by Mikael Pettersson.
