unix: generate ioctlPtr on Linux with unsafe.Pointer arg The existing ioctl stubs for all UNIX-like platforms take a value of type uintptr for the arg parameter. However, arguments which are cast from unsafe.Pointer to uintptr technically violate the rules for package unsafe. unsafe only allows a conversion from unsafe.Pointer to uintptr directly within a call to Syscall. ioctl is used on all UNIX-like operating systems and each one will have to be updated accordingly where pointer arguments are passed to system calls. To remedy this on Linux, we generate a new function called ioctlPtr which takes a value of type unsafe.Pointer for arg. More operating systems can be updated in future CLs by folks who have access to those systems and can run the appropriate code generator.
