This seems not to help in this case. When I include <asm/unified.h> at
the beginning of uaccess.h GCC still seems to emit ".syntax unified".

I guess this is since we are dealing with inline assembly. As far as I
understand its really gcc which emits a ".syntax divided" by default
when compiling ARM mode. There is an option "-masm-syntax-unified" which
according to the gcc man page should do what we need, but it seems
broken, see also: https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=88648

I agree this patch is not particularly pretty, but it is the only
solution I found to make this inline assembly work with gcc and Clang.
