I don't think so, but AFAICT ustat02 is still valid because passing the
wrong data type still has the desired effect of creating an invalid
buffer pointer in the bad address test. On the invalid parameter test,
only the first 32bits of dev are checked before EINVAL is thrown, so
again, it doesn't matter.

So I won't send another patch, but I am not against adding the cast
