So on x86 32, it would work since user_regs_struct == task_pt_regs
(iirc), but on x86-64
and others, that's not true. I don't think it's kosher to expose
pt_regs to the userspace, but if, let's say, x86-32 overrides the weak
linkage, then it could just return task_pt_regs and be the fastest
path.

If it would be appropriate to expose pt_regs to userspace, then I'd
happily do so :)
