    It looks drivers/media/video/video-buf.c uses alloc_kiovec() and
    map_user_kiobuf() to do it. And I think Ben LaHaise was talking about
    removing these functions and creating some other, lightweight
    interface for the same purpose? OTOH, it's been awhile since I looked
    at this stuff, so I'm not sure how it works anymore, I'm sure someone
    else could provide more useful info.
