    Subject[PATCH 06/59] CRED: Wrap task credential accesses in the x86 arch
    Wrap access to task credentials so that they can be separated more easily from
    the task_struct during the introduction of COW creds.

    Change most current->(|e|s|fs)[ug]id to current_(|e|s|fs)[ug]id().

    Change some task->e?[ug]id to task_e?[ug]id(). In some places it makes more
    sense to use RCU directly rather than a convenient wrapper; these will be
    addressed by later patches.
