Subject[PATCH] x86: unify copy_from_user() checking
Commits 4a3127693001c61a21d1ce680db6340623f52e93 ("x86: Turn the
copy_from_user check into an (optional) compile time warning") and
63312b6a6faae3f2e5577f2b001e3b504f10a2aa ("x86: Add a Kconfig option to
turn the copy_from_user warnings into errors") touched only the 32-bit
variant of copy_from_user(), whereas the original commit
9f0cf4adb6aa0bfccf675c938124e68f7f06349d ("x86: Use
__builtin_object_size() to validate the buffer size for
copy_from_user()") also added the same code to the 64-bit one.

Further the earlier conversion from an inline WARN() to the call to
copy_from_user_overflow() went a little too far: When the number of
bytes to be copied is not a constant (e.g. [looking at 3.11] in
drivers/net/tun.c:__tun_chr_ioctl() or
drivers/pci/pcie/aer/aer_inject.c:aer_inject_write()), the compiler
will always have to keep the funtion call, and hence there will always
be a warning. By using __builtin_constant_p() we can avoid this.

Since the 32-bit variant (intentionally) didn't call might_fault(), the
unification results in this being called twice now. Adding a suitable
#ifdef would be the alternative if that's a problem.

I'd like to point out though that with __compiletime_object_size()
being restricted to gcc before 4.6, the whole construct is going to
become more and more pointless going forward. I would question
however that commit 2fb0815c9ee6b9ac50e15dd8360ec76d9fa46a2 ("gcc4:
disable __compiletime_object_size for GCC 4.6+") was really necessary,
and instead this should have been dealt with as is done here from the
beginning.

It also puzzles me that similar checking isn't done for copy_to_user():
While not resulting in (kernel) buffer overflows, size mistakes there
would still lead to information leaks.
