Subject: [PATCH 4.4 31/42] arm64/ptrace: Preserve previous registers for short regset write - 2

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


From: Dave Martin <>

commit 9dd73f72f218320c6c90da5f834996e7360dc227 upstream.

Ensure that if userspace supplies insufficient data to
PTRACE_SETREGSET to fill all the registers, the thread's old
registers are preserved.

Fixes: 766a85d7bc5d ("arm64: ptrace: add NT_ARM_SYSTEM_CALL regset")
