[PATCH 4.9 117/172] x86/mpx: Use compatible types in comparison to fix sparse error

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Jul 03 2017 - 10:20:44 EST

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Tobias Klauser <tklauser@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 453828625731d0ba7218242ef6ec88f59408f368 ]

info->si_addr is of type void __user *, so it should be compared against
something from the same address space.

This fixes the following sparse error:

arch/x86/mm/mpx.c:296:27: error: incompatible types in comparison expression (different address spaces)
