[PATCH 3.18 027/124] metag/ptrace: Reject partial NT_METAG_RPIPE writes

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


From: Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@xxxxxxx>

commit 7195ee3120d878259e8d94a5d9f808116f34d5ea upstream.

It's not clear what behaviour is sensible when doing partial write of
NT_METAG_RPIPE, so just don't bother.

This patch assumes that userspace will never rely on a partial SETREGSET
in this case, since it's not clear what should happen anyway.
