Perhaps you could look at the document in this url:
     http://sg.danny.cz/sg/sg_v40.html

It is work-in-progress to modernize the SCSI generic driver. It
extends ioctl(sg_fd, SG_IO, &pt_obj) to additionally accept the sg v4
interface as defined in include/uapi/linux/bsg.h . Currently only the
bsg driver uses the sg v4 interface. Since struct sg_io_v4 is all
explicitly sized integers, I'm guessing it is immune "compat" problems.
[I can see no reference to bsg nor struct sg_io_v4 in the current
fs/compat_ioctl.c file.]

Other additions described in the that document are these new ioctls:
   - SG_IOSUBMIT    ultimately to replace write(sg_fd, ...)
   - SG_IORECEIVE              to replace read(sg_fd, ...)
   - SG_IOABORT     abort SCSI cmd in progress; new functionality
   - SG_SET_GET_EXTENDED   has associated struct sg_extended_info

The first three take a pointer to a struct sg_io_hdr (v3 interface) or
a struct sg_io_v4 object. Both objects start with a 32 bit integer:
'S' identifies the v3 interface while 'Q' identifies the v4 interface.

The SG_SET_GET_EXTENDED ioctl takes a pointer to a struct
sg_extended_info object which contains explicitly sized integers so it
may also be immune from "compat" problems. The ioctls section (13) of
that document referenced above has a table showing how many "sets and
gets" are hiding in the SG_SET_GET_EXTENDED ioctl.

BTW No change is proposed for this case:
     ioctl(normal_block_device, SG_IO, &sg_v3_obj)
which is handled by block/scsi_ioctl.c


This would be a good time for me to address any "compat" concerns in the
proposed sg driver update.
