Subject[PATCH 20/45] kernel: add do_compat_sigaltstack() helper; remove in-kernel call to compat syscall
Date
Using this helper allows us to avoid the in-kernel call to the
compat_sys_sigaltstack() syscall.

This patch is part of a series which tries to remove in-kernel calls to
syscalls. On this basis, the syscall entry path can be streamlined.
