Do we need to worry about something other than the compat_iovec
struct for now? Regarding the code in io_import_iovec(), it would
seem that can easily be handled by exposing an internal helper.
Instead of

#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
if (req->ctx->compat)
return compat_import_iovec(rw, buf, sqe_len, UIO_FASTIOV,
iovec, iter);
#endif
return import_iovec(rw, buf, sqe_len, UIO_FASTIOV, iovec, iter);

This could do

__import_iovec(rw, buf, sqe_len, UIO_FASTIOV, iovec,
iter, req->ctx->compat);

With the normal import_iovec() becoming a trivial wrapper around
the same thing:

ssize_t import_iovec(int type, const struct iovec __user * uvector,
unsigned nr_segs, unsigned fast_segs,
struct iovec **iov, struct iov_iter *i)
{
return __import_iovec(type, uvector, nr_segs, fast_segs, iov,
i, in_compat_syscall());
}
