Subject: [PATCH 4.19 05/85] ARM: 8790/1: signal: always use __copy_to_user to save iwmmxt context

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

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

Commit 73839798af7ebc6c8d0c9271ebbbc148700e521f upstream.

When setting a dummy iwmmxt context, create a local instance and
use __copy_to_user both cases whether iwmmxt is being used or not.
This has the benefit of disabling/enabling PAN once for the whole copy
intead of once per write.
