Yeah, I think this patch will break userspace, because it doesn't know it's
a pointer. It could be doing:

sscanf(str, "%llu", &val);

The value is just later passed back to the kernel to look up a driver in
iscsi_if_transport_lookup:

        list_for_each_entry(priv, &iscsi_transports, list) {
                if (tt == priv->iscsi_transport) {

so we could just replace priv->transport with an int and use an ida to assign
the value.
