Subject: Re: [PATCH] staging: vt6655: fix direct dereferencing of user pointer

extra is not in user space

All Wireless Extensions ioctl extra calls originate from 
ioctl_standard_iw_point in wext-core.

Either through ioctl or iw_handler

All these functions should have been converted to iw_handler.
