compat: fs: Generic compat_sys_sendfile implementation
This function is used by sparc, powerpc and arm64 for compat support. The patch adds a generic implementation which calls do_sendfile() directly and avoids set_fs(). The sparc architecture has wrappers for the sign extensions while powerpc relies on the compiler to do the this. The patch adds wrappers for powerpc to handle the u32->int type conversion. compat_sys_sendfile64() can be replaced by a sys_sendfile() call since compat_loff_t has the same size as off_t on a 64-bit system. On powerpc, the patch also changes the 64-bit sendfile call from sys_sendile64 to sys_sendfile. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com> Acked-by: David S.
