The arg of ioctl in ppdev is the pointer of integer except the timeval in PPSETTIME, PPGETTIME. Different size of timeval is already supported by the previous patches. So, it is safe to add compat support.

(I think I replied with the reviewed-by tag before to this patch)
I was testing this series today. And it is breaking my userspace code. I am attaching my userspace code for you to check. Its very simple userspace code: 1: open 2: ioctl to claim 3: ioctl - PPGETTIME 4: ioctl - PPSETTIME 5: ioctl - PPGETTIME 6: ioctl - release 7: close
Without this series it works as expected.
With this series applied, the userspace code prints the error message: PPNEGOT: Bad address
I traced it with strace and: ioctl(3, PPGETTIME, 0xbfe91508) = -1 EFAULT (Bad address)
