Subject[071/117] kgdb: dont needlessly skip PAGE_USER test for Fsl booke
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Wufei <fei.wu@windriver.com>

commit 56151e753468e34aeb322af4b0309ab727c97d2e upstream.

The bypassing of this test is a leftover from 2.4 vintage
kernels, and is no longer appropriate, or even used by KGDB.
Currently KGDB uses probe_kernel_write() for all access to
memory via the KGDB core, so it can simply be deleted.

This fixes CVE-2010-1446.
