What would the code actually end up looking like? I don't necessarily
object, since that kernel_stack_pointer() thing certainly looks
horrible, but honestly, my suggestion to just pass in the 'struct
pt_regs' and let the call emulation fix it up would have also worked,
and avoided that bug (and who knows what else might be hiding).

I really think that you're now hitting all the special case magic
low-level crap that I wanted to avoid.
