Sorry, I think I got it now. You were referring to the argument types struct
vgic_io_device and struct kvm_io_device. The patch looks like a very good cleanup.

How changing to commit message to sound something like this (feel free to
ignore/change it if you think of something else):

vgic_uaccess() takes a struct vgic_io_device argument, converts it to a struct
kvm_io_device and passes it to the read/write accessor functions, which convert it
back to a struct vgic_io_device. Avoid the indirection by passing the struct
vgic_io_device argument directly to vgic_uaccess_{read,write).

Thanks,
Alex
