Whilst we will be bound by the API as used forever and a day, I found I
could not review the code against the interface for any aberrant
I'd at least like to some justification for the form of the interface in
the changelog and some indication of expected behaviour. That block
should be good enough also to include next to the ioctl so that we have
some ideas of what userspace is expecting when reviewing the code later.
