Oh, I remember.  I think this was my first device driver :-)

I would first check what Linux ioctls are being used, whether
they're actually needed or could be replaced by portable code, and
if not then specifically check what's available on other kernels.

I think your question is too generic to obtain a useful answer.  Try
referencing specific ioctl macros or the code that uses them.
