kernel: add preliminary support for linux 3.3

Based on 3.3-rc2

  • drivers/watchdog/mpcore_wdt.c

    According to the include/linux/watchdog.h WDIOC_SETOPTIONS is
    classified as 'read from device' ioctl call:
      #define WDIOC_SETOPTIONS        _IOR(WATCHDOG_IOCTL_BASE, 4, int)
    However, the driver 'mpcore_wdt' performs 'copy_from_user' only if
    _IOC_WRITE is set, thus the local variable 'uarg' which is used in
    WDIOC_SETOPTIONS handling remains uninitialized.
    The proper way to fix this is to bind WDIOC_SETOPTIONS to _IOW,
    but this will break compatibility.
    So adding additional condition for performing 'copy_from_user'.
