[PATCH v2 05/19] x86: implement ifence_array_ptr() and array_ptr_mask()




'ifence_array_ptr' is provided as an alternative to the default
'__array_ptr' implementation that uses a mask to sanitize user
controllable pointers. Later patches will allow it to be selected via
kernel command line. The '__array_ptr' implementation otherwise appears
safe for current generation cpus across multiple architectures.

'array_ptr_mask' is used by the default 'array_ptr' implementation to
cheaply calculate an array bounds mask.
