DESCRIPTION
     The fetch functions are designed to copy small amounts of data from user-
     space.

     The fetch routines provide the following functionality:

     fubyte()	 Fetches a byte of data from the user-space address base.

     fuword()	 Fetches a word of data from the user-space address base.

     fuword16()	 Fetches 16 bits of data from the user-space address base.

     fuword32()	 Fetches 32 bits of data from the user-space address base.

     fuword64()	 Fetches 64 bits of data from the user-space address base.

     fuswintr()	 Fetches a short word of data from the user-space address
		 base.	This function is safe to call during an interrupt con‐
		 text.

RETURN VALUES
     The fetch functions return the data fetched or -1 on failure.
