Subject[59/75] sparc: Fix handling of orig_i0 wrt. debugging when restarting syscalls.
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


From: "David S. Miller" <davem@davemloft.net>

[ A combination of upstream commits 1d299bc7732c34d85bd43ac1a8745f5a2fed2078 and
e88d2468718b0789b4c33da2f7e1cef2a1eee279 ]

Although we provide a proper way for a debugger to control whether
syscall restart occurs, we run into problems because orig_i0 is not
saved and restored properly.

Luckily we can solve this problem without having to make debuggers
aware of the issue. Across system calls, several registers are
considered volatile and can be safely clobbered.

Therefore we use the pt_regs save area of one of those registers, %g6,
as a place to save and restore orig_i0.

Debuggers transparently will do the right thing because they save and
restore this register already.
