[X/B/D/E][SRU][PATCH 0/1] Fix for CVE-2019-13648

In the Linux kernel through 5.2.1 on the powerpc platform, when hardware
transactional memory is disabled, a local user can cause a denial of
service (TM Bad Thing exception and system crash) via a sigreturn()
system call that sends a crafted signal frame.

This patch can be cherry-picked into all the affected kernels,
X, B, D and E. I'm sending two patches seperately as the one for B/D/E
cannot be applied to X.
