Ensure that a syscall does not return to user-mode with a kernel address
limit. If that happens, a process can corrupt kernel-mode memory and
elevate privileges [1].

The CONFIG_ADDR_LIMIT_CHECK option disables the generic check so each
architecture can create optimized versions.

Ok, this version looks pretty good to me. Could you (re-)send a full series?

I assume some of these changes need to be propagated into the followup patches but 
even if not it's better to pick up a clean series.

Thanks,
