The lineevent_read() function still needs to be fixed to support
32-bit compat mode on x86, which is independent of the warning.

Something like

static int lineevent_put_data(void __user *uptr, struct gpioevent_data *ge)
{
#ifdef __x86_64__
/* i386 has no padding after 'id' */
if (in_ia32_syscall()) {
struct {
compat_u64 timestamp __packed;
u32 id;
} compat_ge = { ge->timestamp, ge->id };

if (copy_to_user(uptr, &compat_ge, sizeof(compat_ge)))
return -EFAULT;

return sizeof(compat_ge);
}
#endif

if (copy_to_user(uptr, ge, sizeof(*ge))
return -EFAULT;

return sizeof(*ge);
}
