please remove RCSIDs everywhere.

Please push this out. It's fine if they reuse kernel-code in userspace
this way, but please move the compat wrappers to a separate file that's
not in the kernel tree.

totally meaningless typedef

WTF?

in kernel land we __inline__ includes always_inline. Also no need for
a separate prototype for a just following inline function.

No way we're gonna put assembler code into such a driver.

please always used fixes-size types for user communication. also please
avoid ioctls like the rest of the IB codebase.

NACK, there's no way we're gonna put in a way to identify an "official"
version. The official version is the last one in mainline always.

so move it there?

please avoid typedefs for struct types.

No one cares about 2.4 kernels here.

this kind of thing definitly doesn't belong into an LLDD. or maybe
it's just stale prototypes?

Please use the proper functions directly. Your simulator can override
them if nessecary.

volatile use is probably always wrong. but this whole functions looks like
a very odd wrapper anyway?
