[ Adding some ARM people as they might be able to help ]

This was found to cause a regression on a Raspberry Pi 2 B built with
bcm2835_defconfig which among other things has no SMP support.

The relevant logs (edited to remove the noise) are:

[ 5.827333] Run /init as init process
Loading, please wait...
Failed to set SO_PASSCRED: Bad address
Failed to bind netlink socket: Bad address
Failed to create manager: Bad address
Failed to set SO_PASSCRED: Bad address
[ 9.021623] systemd[1]: SO_PASSCRED failed: Bad address
[!!!!!!] Failed to start up manager.
[ 9.079148] systemd[1]: Freezing execution.

I looked into it, it turns out that the call to get_user() in sock_setsockopt()
is returning -EFAULT. Down the assembly rabbit hole that get_user() is I
found-out that it's the macro 'check_uaccess' who's triggering the error.

I'm clueless at this point, so I hope you can give me some hints on what's
going bad here.
