Subject: [PATCH v3] x86/tls: Fix possible spectre-v1 in do_get_thread_area()

The index to access the threads tls array is controlled by userspace
via syscall: sys_ptrace(), hence leading to a potential exploitation
of the Spectre variant 1 vulnerability.
The idx can be controlled from:
        ptrace -> arch_ptrace -> do_get_thread_area.

Fix this by sanitizing idx before using it to index p->thread.tls_array.
