I thought so. I originally wanted as clean move as possible. I'll fix it.

Its in drivers/block/scsi_ioctl.c. AFAICS, its always compiled in, so
I'm not hitting that problem *yet*.

> you need compat_ptr() for iomem_base as well

Its not pointer, AFAICS (at least it can not be dereferenced by
userspace).
