Almost any unchecked get_user()/put_user() is a bug.  Fortunately, there's
not a lot of them
<greps>
93 for put_user() and 73 for get_user().  _Some_ of the former variety might
be legitimate, but most should be taken out and shot.

And dsp56k should be taken out and shot, period ;-/  This is far from the
worst in there...
