Subject[PATCH v11 11/14] uprobes, arm64: untag user pointers in find_active_uprobe
This patch is a part of a series that extends arm64 kernel ABI to allow to
pass tagged user pointers (with the top byte set to something else other
than 0x00) as syscall arguments.

find_active_uprobe() uses provided user pointer (obtained via
instruction_pointer(regs)) for vma lookups, which can only by done with
untagged pointers.

Untag the user pointer in this function.
