So here's a serious patch that doesn't just mark things for counting -
it just removes the cases entirely.

Doesn't this look nice:

2 files changed, 2 insertions(+), 133 deletions(-)

and it is one less thing to worry about when doing further cleanup.

Seriously, if any of those __copy_{to,from}_user() constant cases were
a big deal, we can turn them into get_user/put_user calls. But only
after they show up as an actual performance issue.
