Note that we have two different dev_ifsioc() defintions, which
is a little weird.

But the net/socket.c one does indeed seem superflous as there is no
point in doing the compat_alloc_user_space / copy_in_user as far
as I can tell. compat_ifreq differs from ifreq in the size of
ifru_data, but it seems none of these ioctls actually use it.

A better changelog would be nice, though.
