get_user - Get a simple variable from user space.
get_user (x, ptr);
x Variable to store result.
ptr Source address, in user space.
User context only. This function may sleep.
This macro copies a single simple variable from user space to kernel
space. It supports simple types like char and int, but not larger data
types like structures or arrays.
ptr must have pointer-to-simple-variable type, and the result of
dereferencing ptr must be assignable to x without a cast.
Returns zero on success, or -EFAULT on error. On error, the variable x
is set to zero.
