[PATCH 3.18 026/124] metag/ptrace: Provide default TXSTATUS for short NT_PRSTATUS




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

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

From: Dave Martin <Dave.Martin@xxxxxxx>

commit 5fe81fe98123ce41265c65e95d34418d30d005d1 upstream.

Ensure that if userspace supplies insufficient data to PTRACE_SETREGSET
to fill TXSTATUS, a well-defined default value is used, based on the
task's current value.
