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.
