OK good to know.

That's literally all I ever do.

The problem here is you didn't tell me you were running a big endian
distro, which uses compat mode.

In hindsight I should have thought of that.

Now that I know that, I can reproduce the bug:

Feb 08 23:31:12 mpe-ubuntu-be avahi-daemon[24819]: ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for device
Feb 08 23:31:12 mpe-ubuntu-be avahi-daemon[24819]: ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for device
Feb 08 23:31:12 mpe-ubuntu-be avahi-daemon[24819]: ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for device
Feb 08 23:31:12 mpe-ubuntu-be avahi-daemon[24819]: ioctl(): Inappropriate ioctl for device


But it seems you've already identified the problem commit, thanks for
bisecting.

I'm sure Arnd will be able to fix it now that you've identified the
problematic commit.

cheers
