So the only option to fix this is to determine the type of arg from the request parameter? I failed to find the implementation of ioctl for linux in glibc, the best I found is one that only seems to be used on powerpc[1] which seems to assume that the third argument is a pointer. The Linux kernel prototype takes an unsigned long[2] and encodes the size of the data pointed to in the request using _IOC[3]. On hurd there are different macros to determine the type. I'm not fluent in *BSD and Solaris (and other operating systems), so I cannot add specifics for them. I cannot even say which OS that runs Python can run in 64 bit BE mode.
