I must admit my understanding of spectre workings in this case is 
limited, but why do you need to compare
arg.version against ARRAY_SIZE here, when it is already checked against 
DRM_VMW_EXECBUF_VERSION earlier?

Similarly, we want to perform this copy iff arg.version > 1. Why did you 
remove that check?

Thanks,
