Can you put up the false positives somewhere? I don't have easy access
to an s390 toolchain to test build with and I'm interested to see how
bad the false positives are.

I'm slightly concerned that we'll just have this problem again when
another arch comes along with false positives. But ignoring that issue
is probably fine. I'll respin with a patch to move s390 to something
like DEBUG_WARN_USER_COPY_CHECKS.
