Andrey Konovalov - March 15, 2019, 7:51 p.m.
This patch is a part of a series that extends arm64 kernel ABI to allow to
pass tagged user pointers (with the top byte set to something else other
than 0x00) as syscall arguments.

find_active_uprobe() uses provided user pointer (obtained via
instruction_pointer(regs)) for vma lookups, which can only by done with
untagged pointers.

Untag the user pointer in this function.
