It's baaa-aaack...

(sadly I suspect -EINVAL would be the consistent approach ;-)

Seeing as how this is performing the test as early as possible, would it make
sense to also catch unaligned uaddr and uaddr2 as early as possible too - in
sys_futex?

Something like:

I didn't see a need to do anything of the sort to sys_get_robust_list()
