pps: add ioctl_compat function to correct ioctl definitions

ioctl definitions use the pointer size of the architecture which
is fine when userspace and kernel are the same bitsize. This
patchset workarounds an issue with mixed bitsize kernel + userspace
by rewriting the cmd to the kernelspace architecture pointer size.
