"might"? Does it or not? If it does, why hasn't this been reported
before?

CFI first showed up in 6.1, not 5.15, right?

Why just fix up this one instance? What about ep_user_copy_worker()?
And what about all other calls to ki_complete that are not using a
(long) cast?

This feels wrong, what exactly is the reported error and how come other
kernel calls to this function pointer have not had a problem with CFI?
ceph_aio_complete() would be another example, right?

thanks,
