3.2.61-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andrey Ryabinin <a.ryabinin@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 537094b64b229bf3ad146042f83e74cf6abe59df upstream.

According to arm procedure call standart r2 register is call-cloberred.
So after the result of x expression was put into r2 any following
function call in p may overwrite r2. To fix this, the result of p
expression must be saved to the temporary variable before the
assigment x expression to __r2.
