Subject: [PATCH v2 01/36] x86/uaccess: Tell the compiler that uaccess is unlikely to fault

GCC doesn't realize that get_user, put_user, and their __ variants
are unlikely to fail.  Tell it.

I noticed this while playing with the C entry code.

Before:
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
21828763	5194760	1277952	28301475	1afd8a3	baseline

After:
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
21828379	5194760	1277952	28301091	1afd723	vmlinux
