Embedding pointers in ioctls is much worse. When this happens we basically
end up duplicating the ioctl parsing code (this code courtesy of jakub's
sharp mind, but it would be nice not to require this :)

case VG_CREATE:
v = kmalloc(sizeof(vg_t), GFP_KERNEL);
if (!v) return -ENOMEM;
if (copy_from_user(v, (void *)arg, (long)&((vg32_t *)0)->proc) ||
__get_user(v->proc, &((vg32_t *)arg)->proc)) {
kfree(v);
return -EFAULT;
}
karg = v;
memset(v->pv, 0, sizeof(v->pv) + sizeof(v->lv));
if (v->pv_max > ABS_MAX_PV || v->lv_max > ABS_MAX_LV)
return -EPERM;
for (i = 0; i < v->pv_max; i++) {
err = __get_user(ptr, &((vg32_t *)arg)->pv[i]);
if (err) break;
if (ptr) {
v->pv[i] = kmalloc(sizeof(pv_t), GFP_KERNEL);
if (!v->pv[i]) {
err = -ENOMEM;
break;
}
err = copy_from_user(v->pv[i], (void *)A(ptr), sizeof(pv32_t) - 8);
if (err) {
err = -EFAULT;
break;
}
v->pv[i]->pe = NULL; v->pv[i]->inode = NULL;
}
}
if (!err) {
for (i = 0; i < v->lv_max; i++) {
err = __get_user(ptr, &((vg32_t *)arg)->lv[i]);
if (err) break;
if (ptr) {
v->lv[i] = get_lv_t(ptr, &err);
