I've been wondering whether we need any of this checking for 32-bit
ARMs in any case. I wouldn't like to say definitely, but I've just
tried this:

__get_user_4:
4: ldrt r1, [r0]
mov r0, #0
mov pc, lr

and it appears to behave as we want. My only concern is Xscale with
some of their errata.

If this works out fine, then we could kill the differences between
__get_user and get_user, and __put_user and put_user on ARM. Before
doing that, however, I would want to evaluate the performance and
size difference between having this out of line and inline.
