Which just might mean that we have *three* issues here -
	(1) buggered __copy_to_user_inatomic() (and friends) on some sparcs
	(2) your ssl-only corruption
	(3) Alan's x86_64 corruption on plain TCP read - no ssl *or* sparc
anywhere, and no multi-segment recvmsg().  Which would strongly argue in
favour of some kind of copy_page_to_iter() breakage triggered when handling
a fragmented skb, as in (1).  Except that I don't see anything similar in
x86_64 uaccess primitives...
