Merge branch 'parisc-4.4-4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/deller/parisc-linux
Pull parisc system call restart fix from Helge Deller: "The architectural design of parisc always uses two instructions to call kernel syscalls (delayed branch feature). This means that the instruction following the branch (located in the delay slot of the branch instruction) is executed before control passes to the branch destination. Depending on which assembler instruction and how it is used in usersapce in the delay slot, this sometimes made restarted syscalls like futex() and poll() failing with -ENOSYS" * 'parisc-4.4-4' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/deller/parisc-linux: parisc: Fix syscall restarts
