Hey Jann - Thanks for cleaning this up!

After tracing back through the code, I was struggling to understand why
I thought the __user annotation was needed back then. It turns out that
__user was correct when I wrote 0ddec0fc8900 and that the Fixes tag
should be changed to this:

 Fixes: 32927393dc1c ("sysctl: pass kernel pointers to ->proc_handler")

If you agree, please adjust and resubmit with:

Thank you!
