3.2.79-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Toshi Kani <toshi.kani@hpe.com>

commit a82eee7424525e34e98d821dd059ce14560a1e35 upstream.

Data corruption issues were observed in tests which initiated
a system crash/reset while accessing BTT devices.  This problem
is reproducible.

The BTT driver calls pmem_rw_bytes() to update data in pmem
devices.  This interface calls __copy_user_nocache(), which
uses non-temporal stores so that the stores to pmem are
persistent.

__copy_user_nocache() uses non-temporal stores when a request
size is 8 bytes or larger (and is aligned by 8 bytes).  The
BTT driver updates the BTT map table, which entry size is
4 bytes.  Therefore, updates to the map table entries remain
cached, and are not written to pmem after a crash.

Change __copy_user_nocache() to use non-temporal store when
a request size is 4 bytes.  The change extends the current
byte-copy path for a less-than-8-bytes request, and does not
add any overhead to the regular path.
