I'm not super-familiar with the compat ioctl bits. But this looks plausible.

All three of the ioctl's for this driver have a "pointer to integer" for the
"return" value. And "int" is a compatible type between i386 and x86_64.

I don't have a system setup to build a 32-bit binary to test the theory,
but I assume that you have built something that tests all three:

MCE_GET_RECORD_LEN
MCE_GET_LOG_LEN
MCE_GETCLEAR_FLAGS

So I guess:
