I like how you've done this, but it's buggy and only works on 64-bit.

All the "u64" and "8" cases need to be "unsigned long" and
"sizeof(unsigned long)".

Part of that requirement is:

> + unsafe_get_user(val, (u64 __user *) from, err_fault);

This part works fine - although 64-bit accesses migth be much more
expensive and the win of unrolling might not be sufficient - but:

This part fundamentally only works on 'unsigned long'.
