Yama: handle 32-bit userspace prctl
When running a 64-bit kernel and receiving prctls from a 32-bit userspace, the "-1" used as an unsigned long will end up being misdetected. The kernel is looking for 0xffffffffffffffff instead of 0xffffffff. Since prctl lacks a distinct compat interface, Yama needs to handle this translation itself. As such, support either value as meaning PR_SET_PTRACER_ANY, to avoid breaking the ABI for 64-bit.
