But you are changing the ioctl structures here, what is that going to
cause with old programs?

I am going to require Acks from someone on the Android team to accept
this, or any other 64bit binder patch, given all the back-and-forth that
has happened with the different patch sets here over the past year or
so.

Until then, I can't take this (and I think this patch is still
broken...)

Are you sure this isn't supposed to be a union?

How does this not break existing user/kernel code if only one of them
gets rebuilt with this new header file?  You just changed the ABI here,
not nice...
