Subject[PATCH 3.18 023/124] mips/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 d614fd58a2834cfe4efa472c33c8f3ce2338b09b upstream.

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