As of now, ptrace does not support process self tracing. So here in this
function we really dont have to do anything if current and tsk does not
match each other. In case they match, we will just post one warning (as
ptrace generic code should have prevented this from happening) and move
on. Will make this function very simple like the following and remove
the next patch as well which was created because of this patch.

#ifdef CONFIG_PPC_TRANSACTIONAL_MEM
void flush_tmregs_to_thread(struct task_struct *tsk)
{
/*
* Self tracing is not yet supported through ptrace
* interface. Warn here if attempted.
*/

WARN_ON(tsk == current);
return;
}
#endif
