Um...  Will it even compile?

Ditto.  Look into include/linux/compat.h and you'll see

asmlinkage long compat_sys_preadv64(unsigned long fd,
                const struct compat_iovec __user *vec,
                unsigned long vlen, loff_t pos);

How does that manage to avoid the compiler screaming bloody
