Subject: [PATCH 4.9 074/130] arm64/ptrace: Reject attempts to set incomplete hardware breakpoint fields

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

------------------

From: Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@....com>

commit ad9e202aa1ce571b1d7fed969d06f66067f8a086 upstream.

We cannot preserve partial fields for hardware breakpoints, because
the values written by userspace to the hardware breakpoint
registers can't subsequently be recovered intact from the hardware.

So, just reject attempts to write incomplete fields with -EINVAL.

Fixes: 478fcb2cdb23 ("arm64: Debugging support")
