Well, I don't know if I'm allowed to share the full source code... But, is it not enough with the minimal code I attached to grasp the problem?
With the original kernel modules I'll have problems with the read/write functions because they use the set_fs/get_fs functions too but I think it's not an option to rewrite the driver as a userspace library and maybe I should remain using a < 5.10.x kernel...
