Subject: [PATCH v2 02/36] x86/uaccess: __chk_range_not_ok is unlikely to return true

This should improve code quality a bit.  It also shrinks the kernel
text.

Before:
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
21828379	5194760	1277952	28301091	1afd723 vmlinux
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
21827997	5194760	1277952	28300709	1afd5a5	vmlinux
