It would also be useful (for nefarious reasons) to only copy back the
rsvd2 field, i.e. keep it as DRM_IOW(EXECBUFFER2) and do the small
fixed-sized copy_to_user of rsvd2 as required. That means we can avoid
the copy mostly, and treat args as a private copy of the user
parameters, i.e. space we can scribble over with impunity.
