Subject[PATCH] x86/pkey: Fix undefined behaviour with PKRU_WD_BIT
Both __pkru_allows_write() and arch_set_user_pkey_access() shift
PKRU_WD_BIT (a signed constant) by up to 30 bits, hitting the sign bit.

Use unsigned constants instead.

Clearly pkey 15 has not been used in combination with UBSAN yet.

Noticed by code inspection only. I can't actually provoke the compiler into
generating incorrect logic as far as this shift is concerned, so haven't
included a fixes tag.

If wanted, it is:

Fixes: 33a709b25a76 ("mm/gup, x86/mm/pkeys: Check VMAs and PTEs for protection keys")

except it will collide with the very recent code movement in 784a46618f634.
