Subject[PATCH] x86: Enable fast 32-bit put_user_64 for copy_to_user
Date
For fixed sized copies, copy_to_user() will utilize __put_user_size
fastpaths. However, it is missing the translation for 64bit copies on
x86/32. Testing on a Pinetrail Atom, the 64 bit put_user fastpath is
substantially faster than the generic copy_to_user() fallback.
