Subject[116/156] sparc64: Properly truncate pt_regs framepointer in perf callback.
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: David S. Miller <>

[ Upstream commit 9e8307ecaf9f8c8b5b3b22145021204c4e73114a ]

For 32-bit processes, we save the full 64-bits of the regs in pt_regs.

But unlike when the userspace actually does load and store
instructions, the top 32-bits don't get automatically truncated by the
cpu in kernel mode (because the kernel doesn't execute with PSTATE_AM
address masking enabled).

So we have to do it by hand.
