Actually, there's another broken part - pppox.  And that one
is nastier - you've just lost everything outside of protocol
family ioctls on those sockets.  Try e.g.  SIOCGIFMTU in 32bit
process on those.

We really can't reuse native ->ioctl() there - proto family
->compat_ioctl() *must* return -ENOIOCTLCMD on everything it
doesn't handle.
