[PATCH v3 1/3] syscalls: use uaccess_kernel in addr_limit_user_check

From: Christophe Leroy
Date: Thu Aug 06 2020 - 04:24:10 EST

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxx>

Patch series "clean up address limit helpers", v2.

In preparation for eventually phasing out direct use of set_fs(), this
series removes the segment_eq() arch helper that is only used to implement
or duplicate the uaccess_kernel() API, and then adds descriptive helpers
to force the kernel address limit.

This patch (of 6):

Use the uaccess_kernel helper instead of duplicating it.
