Sorry for not searching thoroughly enough. I suppose you are
interested in user space interface compatibility and you dislike the
idea of removing the ioctls. The patch also seems to be wrong in the
sense that it may change the size of ds_ioctl_arg_t which is a bad

So if I keep the size of region_info_t intact together with not
touching the existing ioctl warning code, do you agree that it would
be ok to get rid of bulkmem.h?
