Disable the generic pre-usermode check in favor of an optimized
implementation. This patch adds specific checks on user-mode return path
to make it faster and smaller.

The address limit is checked on each syscall return path to user-mode.
If it was changed, a generic handler is called to stop the kernel on an
explicit check.

Nitpick: unnecessary empty line added.

You could do a "b address_limit_check_failed" rather than "bl" since we
don't care about returning here (and a nitpick: insert tab between "b"
and "address_limit_check_failed").

With the above:
