[PATCH 1/2] fs/pstore: Use memcpy_toio instead of memcpy

From: Enric Balletbo i Serra
Date: Mon Nov 23 2015 - 04:54:02 EST

From: Furquan Shaikh <furquan@xxxxxxxxxx>

persistent_ram_update uses vmap / iomap based on whether the buffer is in
memory region or reserved region. However, both map it as non-cacheable
memory. For armv8 specifically, non-cacheable mapping requests use a
memory type that has to be accessed aligned to the request size. memcpy()
doesn't guarantee that.
