You missed one. This should be -EFAULT too. And there's not a huge
amount of point in keeping the access_ok() checks elsewhere, since
copy_to_user() does that for itself.

Oh, and I think you do need compat magic for 'struct pps_info' and
'struct pps_params' too -- there's a struct timespec hidden deep in
there, as well as 'unsigned long longpad[3]'.

Can you explain the 'union pps_timeu'? It seems very odd. How do we know
which member of the union should be used?
