I thought so too. But then thought I have no clue how we copy from
kernel to user space and have sr1 == sr0. Hopefully jsm or willy
can comment on this ASAP.

I haven't traced the syscall path.
This could be a 32-user/64-kernel issue.
0x00011980 would be a valid user app address while 0xe9d4 would not.
(I thought all user app addresses were > 0x00010000).
Interesting we managed to make more than a dozen calls before it crashed.
