mm: Make copy_from_user() in migrate.c statically predictable
H. Peter Anvin [Fri, 19 Feb 2010 00:13:40 +0000 (16:13 -0800)]
x86-32 has had a static test for copy_on_user() overflow for a while.
This test currently fails in mm/migrate.c resulting in an
allyesconfig/allmodconfig build failure on x86-32:

In function ‘copy_from_user’,
    inlined from ‘do_pages_stat’ at
    /home/hpa/kernel/git/mm/migrate.c:1012:
/home/hpa/kernel/git/arch/x86/include/asm/uaccess_32.h:212: error:
    call to ‘copy_from_user_overflow’ declared

Make the logic more explicit and therefore easier for gcc to
understand.

v2: rewrite the loop entirely using a more normal structure for a
    chunked-data loop (Linus Torvalds)
