Seems harmless, but do we have a user for that? I'm also skeptical if
SIOCPROTOPRIVATE should actually target a device driver. Seems more like
it's used at higher levels.

Mostly fine, except for some unrelated whitespace breakage in

Looks good, just also indent the "break" of the SIOCETHTOOL block with tabs.

I didn't look into all details, rather relying on test results as well.
Some minor findings:

There is a ping-pong debug change in "net/tcp: recvmsg: remove direct
references to user memory" vs. "net/tcp: sendmsg: remove direct
references to user memory". Please remove.

"net/udp: ioctl: fix temp arg buffer type" should get folded into the
commit that caused the regression ("net/udp: ioctl: remove direct
references to user memory").
