Fix kni's ioctl signature to correctly match the kernel's
structs. This shaves off the (void*) casts and uses struct file*
instead of struct inode*. With the correct signature, control flow
integrity checkers are no longer confused at this point.

v3: adapt to suggestions from Stephen Hemminger (use unsigned int)
v2: adapt to suggestions from Ferruh Yigit
