Merge git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/sparc
Pull sparc changes from David S. Miller: "This has the generic strncpy_from_user() implementation architectures can now use, which we've been developing on linux-arch over the past few days. For good measure I ran both a 32-bit and a 64-bit glibc testsuite run, and the latter of which pointed out an adjustment I needed to make to sparc's user_addr_max() definition. Linus, you were right, STACK_TOP was not the right thing to use, even on sparc itself :-) From Sam Ravnborg, we have a conversion of sparc32 over to the common alloc_thread_info_node(), since the aspect which originally blocked our doing so (sun4c) has been removed." Fix up trivial arch/sparc/Kconfig and lib/Makefile conflicts. * git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/sparc: sparc: Fix user_addr_max() definition. lib: Sparc's strncpy_from_user is generic enough, move under lib/ kernel: Move REPEAT_BYTE definition into linux/kernel.h sparc: Increase portability of strncpy_from_user() implementation. sparc: Optimize strncpy_from_user() zero byte search. sparc: Add full proper error handling to strncpy_from_user(). sparc32: use the common implementation of alloc_thread_info_node()
