SubjectTiming performance regression 4.15 to 4.16-rc1

I've noticed quite some drop of performance (around 15% in some cases) where
execution of lvm2 tests took longer time - and while tests itself should not
really load CPU system - the overall running time just got bigger.

Running bisect game pointed clearly to this commit:


commit 44c02a2c3dc55835e9f0d8ef73966406cd805001

dev_ioctl(): move copyin/copyout to callers


clear revert of this commit on top of 3266b5bd97eaa72793df0b6e5a106c69ccc166c4
(recent ~4.16-rc4) restored timing of tests back.

I'm not sure why - so at this moment this is just a patch causing 15% longer
running times on lvm2 test suite.
