sched_setattr: switch to copy_struct_from_user()
Switch sched_setattr() syscall from it's own copying struct sched_attr from userspace to the new dedicated copy_struct_from_user() helper. The change is very straightforward, and helps unify the syscall interface for struct-from-userspace syscalls. Ideally we could also unify sched_getattr(2)-style syscalls as well, but unfortunately the correct semantics for such syscalls are much less clear (see [1] for more detail). In future we could come up with a more sane idea for how the syscall interface should look.
