Subject[PATCH 4.14 107/109] ARM: spectre-v1: use get_user() for __get_user()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Russell King <rmk+kernel@armlinux.org.uk>

Commit b1cd0a14806321721aae45f5446ed83a3647c914 upstream.

Fixing __get_user() for spectre variant 1 is not sane: we would have to
add address space bounds checking in order to validate that the location
should be accessed, and then zero the address if found to be invalid.

Since __get_user() is supposed to avoid the bounds check, and this is
exactly what get_user() does, there's no point having two different
implementations that are doing the same thing. So, when the Spectre
workarounds are required, make __get_user() an alias of get_user().
