Subject[ 24/48] powerpc: Fix parameter clobber in csum_partial_copy_generic()
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit d9813c3681a36774b254c0cdc9cce53c9e22c756 upstream.

The csum_partial_copy_generic() uses register r7 to adjust the remaining
bytes to process. Unfortunately, r7 also holds a parameter, namely the
address of the flag to set in case of access exceptions while reading
the source buffer. Lacking a quantum implementation of PowerPC, this
commit instead uses register r9 to do the adjusting, leaving r7's
pointer uncorrupted.
