What I did for the networking code is to add a new structure that
contains a union of the kernel and userspace pointer and a flag for
which one to use. That is pretty much the same as what you did, just
a little more structured and type safe. The other alternative would
be to use the iov_iter infrastructure, but that has some overhead.
