Subject[PATCH v4 1/2] Add UFFD_USER_MODE_ONLY
From
userfaultfd handles page faults from both user and kernel code.
Add a new UFFD_USER_MODE_ONLY flag for userfaultfd(2) that makes
the resulting userfaultfd object refuse to handle faults from kernel
mode, treating these faults as if SIGBUS were always raised, causing
the kernel code to fail with EFAULT.

A future patch adds a knob allowing administrators to give some
processes the ability to create userfaultfd file objects only if they
pass UFFD_USER_MODE_ONLY, reducing the likelihood that these processes
will exploit userfaultfd's ability to delay kernel page faults to open
timing windows for future exploits.
