Its my bad, I was focused on the 32bit legacy compatibility code in my
testing because the userspace I have only works with that.

Arve actually warned about this in one of his mails, but I mistakenly
thought it was an issue w/ 3.10 and earlier kernels and had since been
addressed.

I think its the best option for now, but wanted to send it out for
comment to see if anyone objected.

I'm about to head for a conference so I'll be offline until around
Monday. While at the conference I'm going to be working with folks to
see if we can't get the real solution (a __get_user_asm_64
implementation) sorted. But if there are no objections, it might be
best to queue this for staging-next so folks don't hit the issue in the
meantime.

thanks
