Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/2] x86: Allow paranoid __{get,put}_user

__{get,put}_user calls are designed to be fast and have no checks,
relying on the caller to have made the appropriate calls previously.
It's very easy to forget a check though, leaving the kernel vulnerable
to exploits. Add an option to do the checks and kill the kernel if it
catches something bad.

Signed-off-by: Laura Abbott <labbott@...hat.com>

This is the actual implemtation for __{get,put}_user on x86 based on
Mark Rutland's work for arm66
lkml.kernel.org/r/<20171026090942.7041-1-mark.rutland@....com>

x86 turns out to be easier since the safe and unsafe paths are mostly
disjoint so we don't have to worry about gcc optimizing out access_ok.
I tweaked the Kconfig to someting a bit more generic.

The size increase was ~8K in text with a config I tested.
