Subject[PATCH v2 01/17] compat_ioctl: add generic_compat_ioctl_ptrarg()
Date
Many drivers have ioctl() handlers that are completely compatible
between 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, except for the argument
that is passed down from user space and may have to be passed
through compat_ptr() in order to become a valid 64-bit pointer.

Using ".compat_ptr=generic_compat_ioctl_ptrarg" in file operations
should let us simplify a lot of those drivers to avoid #ifdef
checks, and convert additional drivers that don't have proper
compat handling yet.
