[PATCH 0/5] staging: vchiq: stop using compat_alloc_user_space

This driver is one of only a few remaining files using
compat_alloc_user_space() and copy_in_user() to implement the compat_ioctl

Change it to be more like the other drivers, calling the underlying
implementation directly, which is generally simpler and less

This is only build tested so far.

  staging: vchiq: rework compat handling
  staging: vchiq: convert compat create_service
  staging: vchiq: convert compat dequeue_message
  staging: vchiq: convert compat bulk transfer
  staging: vchiq: convert compat await_completion
