^^^^^
Here uamor and amr is read once each.

^^^^^^^
here amr and iamr are written once each if the
the function returns successfully.

^^^
here only if __arch_set_user_pkey_access() fails
amr and iamr and uamor will be written once each.

If my calculations are right:
uamor may be read once and may be written once.
amr may be read once and is written once.
iamr is written once.
So not that bad, i think.
