Side note: in general I don't mind making compat.h a bit more
generic (at all), but is_ia32_task() is really a generic x86
specific check that we can move to processor.h cleanly.

Some other effort should make compat.h bitness agnostic -
uprobes doesn't actually make use of the compat types and
facilities there, and it resulted in a nonsensical change like
making the alloc function generic ...

Thanks,

Ingo
