Well, as comments in that file (kernel/power/user.c) states, those
ioctls are obsolete and will be removed and are only preserved for
compatibility etc. Since no one complained so far (well, no one
complained about whole /dev/snapshot thing at all ;), maybe there's
no need to define those and the following ones too?

Well, your way is definitely a lot cleaner. But I didn't know about
either of them anyway :)

Ok. Your patch was garbled by your MUA (inserting =3D =20 and breaking
lines), but that's ok. After de-garbling it now complains about
undefined compat_uptr_t. For that, I've added

#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
#include <linux/compat.h>
#endif

at the end of the file. Also there was a typo (duplicated above),
compat_ulong should be compat_ulong_t. After all that it finally
compiles. As of "works" -- the above my comment still applies,
uswsusp for one is badly broken on 32/64 bits. I'm trying to
create a simpler test-case, as time permits.

Thanks!
