Rather feels like some of this info should be in the formal docs somewhere rather
than just burried in this patch description.

Also good to have a bit more in the way of docs in the uapi header.

Few trivial things inline, but otherwise seems like straightforwards
wrappers.

Why do we have an existing compat_ioctl here?
Seems odd without the unlocked_ioctl.  I see introduced in the multi buffer
series whereas I think it should in this one.

It has a test against being there without the unlocked_ioctl though so
no great disaster.
