The problem is specific to any arch where the userspace and kernel run
different bitness. Like sparc64, where userland is 32bit (same for
ppc64, mips64 and some other arch's atleast for a short time).

Ioctl's from userspace have to be translated in this case from 32bit to
64bit. Those translations have to be done by someone, and no one has
tried it yet.
