asm-generic: uaccess.h cleanup

Like in 3.19, I once more have a multi-stage cleanup for one asm-generic
header file, this time the work was done by Michael Tsirkin and cleans
up the uaccess.h file in asm-generic, as well as all architectures for
which the respective maintainers did not pick up his patches directly.


Original pull request, merged as 643165c8bbc86:

uaccess: fix sparse warning on get/put_user for bitwise types

At the moment, if p and x are both tagged as bitwise types,
some of get_user(x, p), put_user(x, p), __get_user(x, p), __put_user(x, p)
might produce a sparse warning on many architectures.
This is a false positive: *p on these architectures is loaded into long
(typically using asm), then cast back to typeof(*p).

When typeof(*p) is a bitwise type (which is uncommon), such a cast needs
__force, otherwise sparse produces a warning.

Some architectures already have the __force tag, add it
where it's missing.

I verified that adding these __force casts does not supress any useful warnings.

Specifically, vhost wants to read/write bitwise types in userspace memory
using get_user/put_user.
At the moment this triggers sparse errors, since the value is passed through an

For example:
__le32 __user *p;
__u32 x;

put_user(x, p);
get_user(x, p);
should be safe, but produce warnings on some architectures.

While there, I noticed that a bunch of architectures violated
coding style rules within uaccess macros.
Included patches to fix them up.
