 * happens, handle that and return -EFAULT.
 * We ensure that the __get_user() is executed in atomic context so that
 * do_page_fault() doesn't attempt to take mmap_sem.  This makes
 * probe_kernel_address() suitable for use within regions where the caller
 * already holds mmap_sem, or other locks which nest inside mmap_sem.
 * This must be a macro because __get_user() needs to know the types of the
 * args.

 * We don't include enough header files to be able to do the set_fs().  We
 * require that the probe_kernel_address() caller will do that.
