parentarm/syscalls: Optimize address limit check (diff)
arm64/syscalls: Move address limit check in loop
A bug was reported on ARM where set_fs might be called after it was checked on the work pending function. ARM64 is not affected by this bug but has a similar construct. In order to avoid any similar problems in the future, the addr_limit_user_check function is moved at the beginning of the loop.
