When compat user space asks for more data than the kernel
has in its nodemask, get_mempolicy() now either leaks kernel
stack data to user space or, if either VMAP_STACK or KASAN
are enabled, causes a crash like

Unable to handle kernel pointer dereference in virtual kernel address space
Failing address: 0000038003e7c000 TEID: 0000038003e7c803
Fault in home space mode while using kernel ASCE.
