I had noticed the same thing, but my idea was to have the common code
handled higher up (instead of being pushed further down into a
subroutine). Since I don't know how the ioctls get passed around inside
the kernel, and I had other things to do, I very specificly did not look
at whether or not the code was amenable to this.
