So how about you do a GCC plugin that verifies limits on code-gen
between user_access_begin/user_access_end() ?

- No CALL/RET
- implies user_access_end() happens
- implies no fentry hooks
- No __preempt_count frobbing
- No tracepoints
- ...

That way you put the burden on the special code, not on the rest of the
kernel.
