Why check? Round it down.

That's an ABI change and might break some userspace. I don't think
it's necessary: you are changing individual bits anyway.

OK so the trick is that page is pinned so you don't expect
arch_futex_atomic_op_inuser below to fail.  get_user_pages_fast
guarantees page is not going away but does it guarantee PTE won't be
invaidated or write protected?

Add a comment why this won't fail? Maybe warn on EFAULT?

Also down the road a variant that does not need tricks like this is
still nice to have.
