3.19.8-ckt23 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ricky Liang <jcliang at chromium.org>

commit affa80bd97f7ca282d1faa91667b3ee9e4c590e6 upstream.

When running a 32-bit userspace on a 64-bit kernel, the UI_SET_PHYS
ioctl needs to be treated with special care, as it has the pointer
size encoded in the command.
