Subject: [PATCH] signals: Move put_compat_sigset to compat.h to silence hardened usercopy

Since commit afcc90f8621e ("usercopy: WARN() on slab cache usercopy
region violations"), MIPS systems booting with a compat root filesystem
emit a warning when copying compat siginfo to userspace:

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 953 at mm/usercopy.c:81 usercopy_warn+0x98/0xe8
Bad or missing usercopy whitelist? Kernel memory exposure attempt
detected from SLAB object 'task_struct' (offset 1432, size 16)!

Commit 5905429ad856 ("fork: Provide usercopy whitelisting for
task_struct") noted that:

"While the blocked and saved_sigmask fields of task_struct are copied to
userspace (via sigmask_to_save() and setup_rt_frame()), it is always
copied with a static length (i.e. sizeof(sigset_t))."

However, this is not true in the case of compat signals, whose sigset
is copied by put_compat_sigset and receives size as an argument.

At most call sites, put_compat_sigset is copying a sigset from the
current task_struct. This triggers a warning when
CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY is active. However, by marking this function as
static inline, the warning can be avoided because in all of these cases
the size is constant at compile time, which is allowed. The only site
where this is not the case is handling the rt_sigpending syscall, but
there the copy is being made from a stack local variable so does not
trigger the warning.

Move put_compat_sigset to compat.h, and mark it static inline. This
fixes the WARN on MIPS.
