For platform/drivers/x86:

Acked-by: Darren Hart (VMware) <dvhart@infradead.org>

As for a longer term solution, would it be possible to init fops in such
a way that the compat_ioctl call defaults to generic_compat_ioctl_ptrarg
so we don't have to duplicate this boilerplate for every ioctl fops
structure?
