Looks ok.

x86-32 has had a static test for copy_on_user() overflow for a while.
This test currently fails in mm/migrate.c resulting in an
allyesconfig/allmodconfig build failure on x86-32:

In function ‘copy_from_user’,
inlined from ‘do_pages_stat’ at
/home/hpa/kernel/git/mm/migrate.c:1012:
/home/hpa/kernel/git/arch/x86/include/asm/uaccess_32.h:212: error:
call to ‘copy_from_user_overflow’ declared

Make the logic more explicit and therefore easier for gcc to
understand.

v2: rewrite the loop entirely using a more normal structure for a
chunked-data loop (Linus Torvalds)
