Correct. I had added this patch to the series from an older set of
patches (predating
the compat_ptr_ioctl() series) , and did not check for this issue again. When
I originally created the patch, I assumed that even on s390 it would be no
problem.

Good point, this patch sequence does break bisection.

I was trying to unify the native and compat code paths as much
as possible here. Handling the four PPPIO*32 commands in
compat_ppp_ioctl would either require duplicating large chunks
of ppp_ioctl, or keeping the extra compat_alloc_user_space()
copy from the existing implementation.

I'll try to come up with a different way to structure the patches.
