Why do static sizes bypass these checks?  Just for efficiency?

Sounds fair enough for now.

I haven't ruled out getting rid of the bounce buffers for FPSIMD
copy-in/out.  They add stack and runtime overhead, and don't seem
to bring benefits.

Bounce buffers enable copies to succeed or fail atomically, rather
than being half-done and then faulting.  This feels cleaner, but
In practice this doesn't seem to matter in real situations.

For SVE there are no bounce buffers, because the register data
can be unreasonably large (at least in theory).
