Subject[PATCH v5 18/22] powerpc/syscall: Remove FULL_REGS verification in system_call_exception
Date
For book3s/64, FULL_REGS() is 'true' at all time, so the test voids.
For others, non volatile registers are saved inconditionally.

So the verification is pointless.

Should one fail to do it, it would anyway be caught by the
CHECK_FULL_REGS() in copy_thread() as we have removed the
special versions ppc_fork() and friends.

null_syscall benchmark reduction 4 cycles (332 => 328 cycles)
