Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal
Pull generic execve() changes from Al Viro: "This introduces the generic kernel_thread() and kernel_execve() functions, and switches x86, arm, alpha, um and s390 over to them." * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal: (26 commits) s390: convert to generic kernel_execve() s390: switch to generic kernel_thread() s390: fold kernel_thread_helper() into ret_from_fork() s390: fold execve_tail() into start_thread(), convert to generic sys_execve() um: switch to generic kernel_thread() x86, um/x86: switch to generic sys_execve and kernel_execve x86: split ret_from_fork alpha: introduce ret_from_kernel_execve(), switch to generic kernel_execve() alpha: switch to generic kernel_thread() alpha: switch to generic sys_execve() arm: get rid of execve wrapper, switch to generic execve() implementation arm: optimized current_pt_regs() arm: introduce ret_from_kernel_execve(), switch to generic kernel_execve() arm: split ret_from_fork, simplify kernel_thread() [based on patch by rmk] generic sys_execve() generic kernel_execve() new helper: current_pt_regs() preparation for generic kernel_thread() um: kill thread->forking um: let signal_delivered() do SIGTRAP on singlestepping into handler ...
