I checked again, and I think it's worse than that: ide_taskfile_ioctl()
takes an ide_task_request_t argument, which is not compatible
at all (it has two long members). I suspect what happened here
is that I confused it with ide_cmd_ioctl(), which takes a 'struct
ide_taskfile' argument that /is/ compatible.

I don't think there is a point in adding a handler now: most
users of drivers/ide are 32-bit only, and nobody complained
so far, but I would add this change if you agree:
