From: Petr Tesarik <ptesarik@suse.com>
Subject: Fix memory driver module build with kernel 5.8+
Upstream: submitted 2020-09-04

Kernel commit fe557319aa06c23cffc9346000f119547e0f289a renamed
probe_kernel_{read,write} to copy_{from,to}_kernel_nofault.

I'm also adding inline function wrapper to allow building the
module with older kernel versions.

Additionally, commit 0493cb086353e786be56010780a0b7025b5db34c
unexported probe_kernel_write(), so writing kernel memory is
no longer possible from a module.

Without this patch, build with kernel 5.8 and later fails:

kbuild/default/crash.c: In function 'crash_write':
kbuild/default/crash.c:189:12: error: implicit declaration of function 'probe_kernel_write'; did you mean 'kernel_write'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
  189 |        if (probe_kernel_write(vaddr, buffer, count)) {
      |            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      |            kernel_write
kbuild/default/crash.c: In function 'crash_read':
kbuild/default/crash.c:225:13: error: implicit declaration of function 'probe_kernel_read'; did you mean 'kernel_read'? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
  225 |         if (probe_kernel_read(buffer, vaddr, count)) {
      |             ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      |             kernel_read
