[dm-devel] [PATCH] compat_ioctl: fix reimplemented SG_IO handling causing -EINVAL from sg_io()

scsi_cmd_ioctl() had hdr as on stack auto variable and called
copy_{from,to}_user with the address operator &hdr and sizeof(hdr).

After the refactoring, {get,put}_sg_io_hdr() takes a pointer &hdr.
So the copy_{from,to}_user within the new helper functions should
just take the given pointer argument hdr and sizeof(*hdr).

I saw -EINVAL from sg_io() done by /usr/lib/udev/scsi_id which could
in turn no longer whitelist SCSI disks for devicemapper multipath.

Arnd, I'm not sure about the sizeof(hdr32) change in the compat part in

This is for next, probably via Arnd's y2038/y2038,
and it fixes next-20190917 for me regarding SCSI generic.
