In my systems, ioctl(2) is called through glibc, just like any other syscall. The fact that glibc normally passes the data straight through to the kernel is irrelevant; ioctl(2) is normally a library function, not a direct kernel call.
If you want to replace ioctl with ConfigFS, this is the obvious transition plan. If you don't want to do so, then of course the transition plan's a bad idea.
