Well, the problem is that uhid_char_write() reads from a user pointer embedded
in the write() payload. (Which really is abusing write(), but I assume it
cannot be changed at this point...) Thus it's unsafe to be called under
KERNEL_DS. So it needs:

if (uaccess_kernel())
return -EACCES;

See sg_check_file_access(), called from sg_read() and sg_write(), for another
example of this in the kernel.
