If I understand your patch description well, using compat_ptr_ioctl
only works if the driver is not for s390, right?
No, the purpose of compat_ptr_ioctl() is to make sure it works
everywhere including s390.
Even on s390 it tends to work most of the time, but for correctness
the upper bit of a 32-bit pointer needs to be cleared, as
compat_ptr_ioctl does, in case some application passes a pointer
with that bit set. [IIRC, in the instruction pointer, the high bit is set, in
data references it is ignored but usually cleared, but it may be left
on for IP-relative address generation]
