Depending on the other checks you may also be able to cross from
user addresses to kernel ones.
At the minimum sockptr_advance() has to fail if the boundary
would be crossed.

The 'is this a kernel or user copy' needs to use the base
address from the system call.
So you do need the offset passed in to copy_to/from_sockptr().

Clearly churn can be reduced by using a #define or static inline
for the common case.

The alternative is to pass a 'fat pointer' through than can
contain an offset as well as the user/kernel bases and
expected length.
