How about we just get rid of the union entirely, and just use
'unsigned long' or 'unsigned long long' depending on the size.

Something like the attached patch - it still requires that it be an
arithmetic type, but now because of the final cast.

But it might still be a cast to a volatile type, of course. Then the
result will be volatile, but at least now READ_ONCE() won't be taking
the address of a volatile variable on the stack - does that at least
fix some of the horrible code generation. Hmm?

This is untested, because I obviously still have the cases of
structures (page table entries) being accessed once..
