[RFC PATCH for 4.18 1/2] rseq: use __u64 for rseq_cs fields, validate abort_ip < TASK_SIZE

From: Mathieu Desnoyers
Date: Mon Jul 02 2018 - 16:41:24 EST

Change the rseq ABI so rseq_cs start_ip, post_commit_offset and abort_ip
fields are seen as 64-bit fields by both 32-bit and 64-bit kernels rather
that ignoring the 32 upper bits on 32-bit kernels. This ensures we have a
consistent behavior for a 32-bit binary executed on 32-bit kernels and in
compat mode on 64-bit kernels.

Validating the value of abort_ip field to be below TASK_SIZE ensures the
kernel don't return to an invalid address when returning to userspace
after an abort. I don't fully trust each architecture code to consistently
deal with invalid return addresses.

If validation fails, the process is killed with a segmentation fault.
