Subject[PATCH] arm: fix text section corruption
When CONFIG_CPU_SW_DOMAIN_PAN is enabled, there are 9 registers being
pushed into stack in save_regs, but in fixup it still consider there are
8 registers in stack, which is the case of CONFIG_CPU_SW_DOMAIN_PAN
When fixup being executed, -EFAULT will be written to the text section.

In fixup:
mov r4, #-EFAULT
* When CONFIG_CPU_SW_DOMAIN_PAN enabled, r5 will load the value stored by
* lr in save_regs, which is the address of instruction in text section.
ldr r5, [sp,#8*4] @err_ptr
* This will write -EFAULT(0xfffffff2) to r5, which points to text section
* now, and when function returns, it will use 0xfffffff2 as an
* instruction, then undefined instruction occurs.
str r4, [r5]
