ARM: 8226/1: cacheflush: get rid of restarting block
We cannot restart cacheflush safely if a process provides user-defined signal handler and signal is pending. In this case -EINTR is returned and it is expected that process re-invokes syscall. However, there are a few problems with that: * looks like nobody bothers checking return value from cacheflush * but if it did, we don't provide the restart address for that, so the process has to use the same range again * ...and again, what might lead to looping forever So, remove cacheflush restarting code and terminate cache flushing as early as fatal signal is pending.
