Subject: [RFC PATCH 1/2] arm64: write __range_ok() in C

Currently arm64's __range_ok() is written in assembly for efficiency.

This hides the logic from the compiler, preventing the compiler from
making some optimizations, such as re-ordering instructions or folding
multiple calls to __range_ok().

This patch uses GCC's __builtin_uaddl_overflow() to provide an
equivalent, efficient check, while giving the compiler the visibility it
needs to optimize the check. In testing with v4.14-rc5 using the Linaro
17.05 GCC 6.3.1 toolchain, this has no impact on the kernel Image size,
(but results in a smaller vmlinux).
