Subject: [RFC PATCH v1 18/19] powerpc/signal32: Add and use
 unsafe_put_sigset_t()

put_sigset_t() calls copy_to_user() for copying two words.

Because INLINE_COPY_TO_USER is not defined on powerpc,
copy_to_user() doesn't get optimised and falls back to
copy_tofrom_user() with the relevant glue. This is terribly
inefficient for copying two words.

By switching to unsafe_put_user(), we end up with something as
simple as:

 3cc:   81 3d 00 00     lwz     r9,0(r29)
 3d0:   91 26 00 b4     stw     r9,180(r6)
 3d4:   81 3d 00 04     lwz     r9,4(r29)
 3d8:   91 26 00 b8     stw     r9,184(r6)
