    Subject[PATCH][0/4] let's kill verify_area

    verify_area() if just a wrapper for access_ok() (or similar function or
    dummy function) for all arch's. I say it's time we just get rid of it as
    it no longer serves any purpose and it's easy to convert to access_ok.
    Converting all users may take some time, so initially deprecate it (which
    will get the janitors attention as well as maintainers and ordinary users)
    and then when all users of the function are converted we can kill it and
    all comments related to it.

    The following patches deprecate the function for all arch's and then do a
    few initial conversions just to get things moving.

    Comments are welcome.
