parisc: Fix ptrace syscall number and return value modification
[ Upstream commit 98e8b6c9ac9d1b1e9d1122dfa6783d5d566bb8f7 ] Mike Frysinger reported that his ptrace testcase showed strange behaviour on parisc: It was not possible to avoid a syscall and the return value of a syscall couldn't be changed. To modify a syscall number, we were missing to save the new syscall number to gr20 which is then picked up later in assembly again. The effect that the return value couldn't be changed is a side-effect of another bug in the assembly code. When a process is ptraced, userspace expects each syscall to report entrance and exit of a syscall. If a syscall number was given which doesn't exist, we jumped to the normal syscall exit code instead of informing userspace that the (non-existant) syscall exits. This unexpected behaviour confuses userspace and thus the bug was misinterpreted as if we can't change the return value. This patch fixes both problems and was tested on 64bit kernel with 32bit userspace.
