Commit b9a4b9d084d978f80eb9210727c81804588b42ff upstream.

FAR_EL1 is UNKNOWN for all debug exceptions other than those caused by
taking a hardware watchpoint. Unfortunately, if a debug handler returns
a non-zero value, then we will propagate the UNKNOWN FAR value to
userspace via the si_addr field of the SIGTRAP siginfo_t.

Instead, let's set si_addr to take on the PC of the faulting instruction,
which we have available in the current pt_regs.

I did separate backports for the various stable trees, and annotated them
all accordingly in the subject and the @stable line. I think Greg has
already taken care of them.
