Do we really need this ugly userspace emulation code in the kernel?

What is this used for? Why can't yo use memcpy?

Please use ALIGN().

[snip, snip]

You seem to be introducing loads of new ioctls. Any reason you can't
use sysfs and/or configfs?

Please use static inlines instead for readability.
