Many drivers have ioctl() handlers that are completely compatible between
32-bit and 64-bit architectures, except for the argument that is passed
down from user space and may have to be passed through compat_ptr()
in order to become a valid 64-bit pointer.

Using ".compat_ptr = compat_ptr_ioctl" in file operations should let
us simplify a lot of those drivers to avoid #ifdef checks, and convert
additional drivers that don't have proper compat handling yet.

On most architectures, the compat_ptr_ioctl() just passes all arguments
to the corresponding ->ioctl handler. The exception is arch/s390, where
compat_ptr() clears the top bit of a 32-bit pointer value, so user space
pointers to the second 2GB alias the first 2GB, as is the case for native
32-bit s390 user space.

The compat_ptr_ioctl() function must therefore be used only with
ioctl functions that either ignore the argument or pass a pointer to a
compatible data type.

If any ioctl command handled by fops->unlocked_ioctl passes a plain
integer instead of a pointer, or any of the passed data types is
incompatible between 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, a proper handler
is required instead of compat_ptr_ioctl.

v3: add a better description
v2: use compat_ptr_ioctl instead of generic_compat_ioctl_ptrarg,
as suggested by Al Viro
