Would it be possible to move the bulk of the copyuser code into a
seperate file which can be #included once the these err macros are
defined? Anton's memcpy is pretty hairy and I don't think anyone wants
to have multiple copies of it in the tree, even in a cut down form.
I've split it out for now, in the future that might be a good thing to do.
The copy_tofrom_user_power7 falls backs on __copy_tofrom_user_base
to track exactly how much is left over. Adding these changes there would
create a larger churn and need way more testing. I've taken this short-cut
for now with a promise to fix that as the semantics of memcpy_mcsafe()
change to do more accurate tracking of how much was copied over.
