Andrey Konovalov - May 6, 2019, 4:30 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.

do_pages_move() is used in the implementation of the move_pages syscall.

Untag user pointers in this function.
