Yeah, an that code almost never actually triggers in practice. The
code is pointless and dead.

The thing is, it's only ever used for the double undescore versions,
and the ones that do have have it are almost never constant sizes in
the first place.

And yes, there's like a couple of cases in the whole kernel.

Just remove those constant size cases. They are pointless and just
complicate our headers and slow down the compile for no good reason.

Try the attached patch, and then count the number of "rorx"
instructions in the kernel. Hint: not many. On my personal config,
this triggers 15 times in the whole kernel build (not counting
modules).

It's not worth it. The "speedup" from using __copy_{to,from}_user()
with the fancy inlining is negligible. All the cost is in the
STAC/CLAC anyway, the code might as well be deleted.

No, just do a proper range check, and use user_access_begin()

Stop trying to optimize that range check away. It's a couple of fast
instructions.

The only ones who don't want the range check are the actual kernel
copy ones, but they don't want the user_access_begin() either.

Looks reasonable.
