    But if we add an ABI we end up stuck with it and this one is really
    really rather ugly.

    Can you not put pioctl() into a C library linked with the openafs
    utilities that generates more sensible interface calls ? I mean you have
    to produce the pioctl() syscall wrapper anyway so why not make "pioctl" a
    user space compat library ?
