If we are inventing new API, then if we could have

ssize_t kioctl(int fd, int type, int cmd,
const struct iovec* riov, size_t riov_len,
const struct iovec* wiov, size_t wiov_len);

then I'm almost sure that it will save couple of passing pointer to pointer
in structure headaches - for sure it will in code I maintain (ncpfs).
