3.5.7.8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>

commit b255188f90e2bade1bd11a986dd1ca4861869f4d upstream.

Paolo Pisati reports that IPv6 triggers this warning:

Fix this by using probe_kernel_address() stead of __get_user().
