Subject[ 18/69] ARC: Fix 32-bit wrap around in access_ok()
Date
3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vineet Gupta <vgupta@synopsys.com>

commit 0752adfda15f0eca9859a76da3db1800e129ad43 upstream.

Anton reported

| LTP tests syscalls/process_vm_readv01 and process_vm_writev01 fail
| similarly in one testcase test_iov_invalid -> lvec->iov_base.
| Testcase expects errno EFAULT and return code -1,
| but it gets return code 1 and ERRNO is 0 what means success.

Essentially test case was passing a pointer of -1 which access_ok()
was not catching. It was doing [@addr + @sz <= TASK_SIZE] which would
pass for @addr == -1

Fixed that by rewriting as [@addr <= TASK_SIZE - @sz]
