They're both mucking with the location of the pt_regs. The above code
just takes that fact and hides it in the corner and hopes that there are
no bugs lurking there.

Even with the CPL check, the "gap" code is simple and self-contained
(see below). The kernel pt_regs can already be anywhere on the stack so
there should be no harm in moving them.

AFAICT, all the other proposed options seem to have major issues.
