I admit I haven't compile tested this on all the affected architectures.
Looking at the architectures that are migrated here I don't see any that
are defining get_current() as a macro except for alpha. Should I drop
alpha from the patch? Or would it be easier if someone threw this into
linux-next and see if it blows up?

In the meantime I can scrounge around for those kernel.org
cross-compilers and see if I can compile alpha.
