commit 7ad1e366167837daeb93d0bacb57dee820b0b898 upstream.

ia64 has two stacks:

 - memory stack (or stack), pointed at by by r12

 - register backing store (register stack), pointed at by
   ar.bsp/ar.bspstore with complications around dirty
   register frame on CPU.

In [1] Dmitry noticed that PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO returns the register
stack instead memory stack.

The bug comes from the fact that user_stack_pointer() and
current_user_stack_pointer() don't return the same register:

  ulong user_stack_pointer(struct pt_regs *regs) { return regs->ar_bspstore; }
  #define current_user_stack_pointer() (current_pt_regs()->r12)

The change gets both back in sync.

I think ptrace(PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO) is the only affected user by
this bug on ia64.

The change fixes 'rt_sigreturn.gen.test' strace test where it was
observed initially.
