I'd just define this using compat_s64 instead of __s64 __packed so we can
use the same code on all architectures, even at the small cost of extra
text size on non-x86 architectures.

Here, you can call do_fallocate directly in the same way that ioctl_preallocate
does, replacing the copy_in_user calls with __get_user().
