How do you deal with the key reuse problem? Is it the same as x86-64,
where it's quite easy to accidentally grant existing threads access to
a just-allocated key, either due to key reuse or a changed init_pkru
parameter?

What about siglongjmp from a signal handler?

I wonder if it's possible to fix some of these things before the exact
semantics of these interfaces are set in stone.
