Actually, there was one idea that Deepa mentioned for another subsystem
with a similar issue: instead of passing down the fact that we come from
a compat syscall through multiple function calls, the lowest ones
(put_user_mtpos, put_user_mtget) could call in_compat_syscall().

Would you prefer that?
