[Bridge] [PATCH 03/24] net: add a new sockptr_t type

Add a uptr_t type that can hold a pointer to either a user or kernel
memory region, and simply helpers to copy to and from it.  For
architectures like x86 that have non-overlapping user and kernel
address space it just is a union and uses a TASK_SIZE check to
select the proper copy routine.  For architectures with overlapping
address spaces a flag to indicate the address space is used instead.
