Actually looking at __sys_setsockopt() it calls
BPF_CGROUP_RUN_PROG_SETSOCKOPT() which (by the look of it)
can copy the user buffer into malloc()ed memory and
cause set_fs(KERNEL_DS) be called.

The only way to get rid of that set_fs() is to always
have the buffer in kernel memory when the underlying
setsockopt() code is called.

The comment above __sys_[sg]etsockopt() about not knowing
the length is just wrong.
It probably applied to getsockopt() in the dim and distant
past before it was made read-update.
