Yes - but we are also converting old write() commands into ioctl()
when they need new functionality. So in this case it should convert
reg_mr to ioctl() then add an optional report PID argument

Well, it is just that this is a macro call, and you usually can't have
a trailing comma in a function-macro call, at least I thought this was
the case.. Without some study I'm not sure what it expands to, or if
that expansion is even OK..
