Tue Feb 19 18:48:44 UTC 2013 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jan Beulich <JBeulich at suse.com>

commit 40a1ef95da85843696fc3ebe5fce39b0db32669f upstream.

For some reason they didn't get replaced so far by their
paravirt equivalents, resulting in code to be run with
interrupts disabled that doesn't expect so (causing, in the
observed case, a BUG_ON() to trigger) when syscall auditing is

David (Cc-ed) came up with an identical fix, so likely this can
be taken to count as an ack from him.
