You can't really use 'u64' arguments in portable syscalls, it causes
a couple of problems, both with defining the user space wrappers,
and with compat mode.

Variants that would work include:

- using 'unsigned long' instead of 'u64'
- passing 'mask' by reference, as in splice()
- passing the mask in two u32-bit arguments like in llseek()

Not sure if any of the above work for you.
