Andrey Konovalov - May 6, 2019, 4:31 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.

tee_shm_register()->optee_shm_unregister()->check_mem_type() uses provided
user pointers for vma lookups (via __check_mem_type()), which can only by
done with untagged pointers.

Untag user pointers in this function.
