Hmmm... AFAICS, the right thing to do would be to have __get_kernel_nofault
and __put_kernel_nofault in arch/x86/um/asm/something. The question is how
to avoid duplicating the x86 implementation of those (along with the asm-goto
fun, etc.)...

But Christoph is right, it's not a new problem. As far as I'm concerned,
that series looks fine.
