Subject[PATCH 4/4] arm64/syscalls: Move address limit check in loop
Date
From: Thomas Garnier <thgarnie@google.com>

A bug was reported on ARM where set_fs might be called after it was
checked on the work pending function. ARM64 is not affected by this bug
but has a similar construct. In order to avoid any similar problems in
the future, the addr_limit_user_check function is moved at the beginning
of the loop.

Fixes: cf7de27ab351 ("arm64/syscalls: Check address limit on user-mode return")
Reported-by: Leonard Crestez <leonard.crestez@nxp.com>
