[PATCH v4 0/4] compat: remove compat_alloc_user_space callers

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd at arndb.de>

Going through compat_alloc_user_space() to convert indirect system call
arguments tends to add complexity compared to handling the native and
compat logic in the same code.

The drivers/media portion of the longer series is already merged,
and I just resubmitted the net/core and drivers/net portions, so this
is the last main bit.


Changes in v4:

- Rebase to v5.14-rc2
- Replace the kexec patch with a version based on Eric Biederman's

Changes in v3:

- fix whitespace as pointed out by Christoph Hellwig
- minor build fixes
- rebase to v5.13-rc1

Changes in v2:

- address review comments from Christoph Hellwig
- split syscall removal into a separate patch
- replace __X32_COND_SYSCALL() with individual macros for x32
