arm64: ptrace: change fs when passing kernel pointer to regset codev3.14/topic/arm64-ptrace
Our compat PTRACE_POKEUSR implementation simply passes the user data to regset_copy_from_user after some simple range checking. Unfortunately, the data in question has already been copied to the kernel stack by this point, so the subsequent access_ok check fails and the ptrace request returns -EFAULT. This causes problems tracing fork() with older versions of strace. This patch briefly changes the fs to KERNEL_DS, so that the access_ok check passes even with a kernel address.
