Subject: [PATCH 4.19 08/85] ARM: 8793/1: signal: replace __put_user_error with __put_user

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

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

Commit 18ea66bd6e7a95bdc598223d72757190916af28b upstream.

With Spectre-v1.1 mitigations, __put_user_error is pointless. In an attempt
to remove it, replace its references in frame setups with __put_user.
