Any specific config options are needed on x86-64 kernel to use 32-bit
user-space? I'm not well versed in x86 architectures, that's why I'm
asking. I built a 32-bit userspace qemu image with yocto and then
manually built a 64-bit kernel. I tried running it but I'm getting a
kernel panic when the rootfs is being mounted.

On a different note: why would endianness be an issue here? 32-bit
variables with 64-bit alignment should still be in the same place in
memory, right?

Any reason not to use __packed for this structure and not deal with
this whole compat mess?

I also noticed that my change will only allow user-space to read one
event at a time which seems to be a regression with regard to the
current implementation. I probably need to address this too.
