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

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

From: Al Viro <v...@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

commit 2545e5da080b4839dd859e3b09343a884f6ab0e3 upstream.

... in all cases, including the failing access_ok()

Note that some architectures using asm-generic/uaccess.h have
__copy_from_user() not zeroing the tail on failure halfway
through.  This variant works either way.
