Subject[PATCH] NOMMU: use copy_*_user_page() in access_process_vm()
Date
From: Jie Zhang <jie.zhang@analog.com>

The mmu code uses the copy_*_user_page() variants in access_process_vm()
rather than copy_*_user() as the former includes an icache flush. This is
important when doing things like setting software breakpoints with gdb.
So switch the nommu code over to do the same.
