Right, I ended up with something similar before I saw your message.

I would still leave the ISDN side alone, aside from adding
the 64-bit time_t support.

I expected that the ppp_compat_ioctl() function would end up
fairly complex, to duplicate the logic before the switch()/case.

What I have now is

static long ppp_compat_ioctl(struct file *file, unsigned int cmd,
unsigned long arg)
        struct ppp_file *pf;
        struct ppp *ppp;
        int err = -ENOIOCTLCMD;
        struct ppp_option_data32 data32;
        struct ppp_option_data data;
        void __user *argp = compat_ptr(arg);


        pf = file->private_data;
        if (!pf || pf->kind != INTERFACE)
                goto out;

        ppp = PF_TO_PPP(pf);
        switch (cmd) {
        case PPPIOCSCOMPRESS32:
                if (copy_from_user(&data32, argp, sizeof(data32))) {
                        err = -EFAULT;
                        goto out;

                data.ptr = compat_ptr(data32.ptr);
                data.length = data32.length;
                data.transmit = data32.transmit;

                err = ppp_set_compress(ppp, &data);

        case PPPIOCSPASS32:
                err = compat_get_sock_fprog(&uprog, argp);
                if (err)
                err = ppp_set_filter(ppp, &uprog, &ppp->pass_filter);

        case PPPIOCSACTIVE32:
                err = compat_get_sock_fprog(&uprog, argp);
                if (err)
                err = ppp_set_filter(ppp, &uprog, &ppp->active_filter);
#endif /* CONFIG_PPP_FILTER */



        if (err == -ENOIOCTLCMD)
                err = ppp_ioctl(file, cmd, (unsigned long)compat_ptr(arg));

        return err;

Which doesn't look nearly as bad as I had feared, but still is
a larger change to the existing code than what I had before,
so there is a bigger risk that I screwed up somewhere new.
