I think the 4.19 stage may be overkill, but I don't hate it, so no
If the main reason for this is that we silently clear the upper bits
when returning to compat mode, I actually think that a better fix
would be to just fix that. We shouldn't silently ignore bogus data in
the return path.
But I don't care enough, I think.
