    Subjectaio: compat_ioctl issue?

    I just come across a situation (next in a long row :)
    when on x86, 32bit userspace does not work with 64bit
    kernel. This time this is about aio requests.

    An application submits some aio job, and it is returned
    immediately (from io_getevents()) with EINVAL error.
    Here's what it does (it's a printf in the application -
    actual arguments as passed to io_submit() and actual
    result received in io_getevents()):

    io_submit: lio_opcode=7 reqprio=0 iov=0x9cd7018{0xf5599000,4096}, niov=1, offset=0
    io_getevents: expected 4096 got -22 (EINVAL)

    Note that it is not io_submit() which fails (that one
    returns success) but io_getevents(), so it has to be
    down the pipeline somewhere.

    Can someone comment this please? Somehow I was thinking this
    codepath works as - I think anyway - I ran 32bit Oracle database
    with aio support on 64bit kernel, but I may be mistaken.

    Kernel is 2.6.33 from
