Subject: [PATCHES] uaccess hpsa

hpsa compat ioctl done (hopefully) saner. I really want to kill compat_alloc_user_space() off - it's always trouble and for a driver-private ioctls it's absolutely pointless.

The series is in vfs.git #uaccess.hpsa, based at v5.7-rc1

Al Viro (4):
hpsa passthrough: lift {BIG_,}IOCTL_Command_struct copy{in,out} into hpsa_ioctl()
hpsa: don't bother with vmalloc for BIG_IOCTL_Command_struct
hpsa: get rid of compat_alloc_user_space()
hpsa_ioctl(): tidy up a bit
