30//           User space access API (implementation in hal_uspace.c)
31//
32// For sake of portability, user/kernel data transfers must use the following API.
33//
34// When moving data between user space and kernel space, the user address is always
35// a virtual address, and the kernel address is an extended pointer.
36// Therefore, each of these buffers can be located in any cluster.
37//
38// WARNING: these function must be executed by an user thread (i.e. PID > 0),
39//          to handle a possible page fault when accessing the user buffer.
