This exists already:

#define _IOC_DIRMASK    ((1 << _IOC_DIRBITS)-1)

(Tanget: what was the reason for copy_struct_from_user() not including
the min/max check? I have a memory of Al objecting to having an
"internal" limit?)

Ah yeah, I like this because of what you mention below: it's forward
compat too. (I'd just use the ioctl masks directly...)

	switch (cmd & ~(_IOC_SIZEMASK | _IOC_DIRMASK))

> 		return seccomp_notify_addfd(filter, buf, _IOC_SIZE(cmd));

I really like that this ends up having the same construction as a
standard EA syscall: the size is part of the syscall arguments.

(Technically, a new one is always redefined, but it's automatic in that
the kernel needs to do nothing.)

Yeah, this is a good solution.

Cool. I will do more patch reworking! ;)
