Subject: Re: [PATCH 22/24] ARM64:ILP32: Use a seperate syscall table as a few
 syscalls need to be using the compat syscalls.

This adds a slight penalty on the AArch64 SVC entry path. I can't tell
whether that's visible or not but I think the x86 guys decided to set an
extra bit to the syscall number to distinguish it from native calls.

Do these actually work? compat_iovec has two members of 32-bit each
while the ILP32 iovec has a void * (32-bit) and a __kernel_size_t which
is 64-bit.

Same here, we have a size_t * argument. The compat function would write
back 32-bit but size_t is 64-bit for ILP32.

More size_t members in the kexec_segment structure (but we don't yet
have kexec on arm64).

Why compat here? struct sockaddr seems to be the same as the native one.

These get messier as well with a different size_t affecting struct
msghdr.

Looking at the sock_getsockopt() function, we have a union v copied
to/from user. However, such a union contains a struct timeval which for
ILP32 would be different than the compat one.

See above for iovec.

Which structure is this?

Does the long bitmask matter here? I can see the length is passed in
bytes.

Same problem as iovec above.

sys_io_setup takes a pointer to aio_context_t which is defined as
__kernel_ulong_t (same as LP64).
