It was possible to "fix" (mitigate to some extent) before libgpiod got support
for several events in a request. Now it seems to be impossible to fix. AFAIU we
must discard any request to more than one event in it.

However I'm not an expert in compat IOCTL code (you are :-) and perhaps you may
provide ideas better than mine.
