  asm-generic: optimize generic uaccess for 8-byte loads and stores
(2019-04-23 21:51:41 +0200)

asm-generic: kill <asm/segment.h> and improve nommu generic uaccess helpers

Christoph Hellwig writes:

  This is a series doing two somewhat interwinded things.  It improves
  the asm-generic nommu uaccess helper to optionally be entirely generic
  and not require any arch helpers for the actual uaccess.  For the
  generic uaccess.h to actually be generically useful I also had to kill
  off the mess we made of <asm/segment.h>, which really shouldn't exist
  on most architectures.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Christoph Hellwig (4):
      asm-generic: don't include <asm/segment.h> from <asm/uaccess.h>
      arch: mostly remove <asm/segment.h>
      asm-generic: provide entirely generic nommu uaccess
      asm-generic: optimize generic uaccess for 8-byte loads and stores
