Subject[PATCH 3.18 025/124] metag/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@arm.com>

commit a78ce80d2c9178351b34d78fec805140c29c193e upstream.

Ensure that if userspace supplies insufficient data to PTRACE_SETREGSET
to fill all the registers, the thread's old registers are preserved.
