All 32-bit kernels supported by glibc today define the 64-bit file offset types
(__off64_t, __ino64_t, ...) and a lot of them never had the old 'long' types
(__off_t, __ino_t, ...), but applications can still pick between the two ABIs
when compiling against glibc, see /usr/include/fcntl.h:

#ifndef __off_t_defined
# ifndef __USE_FILE_OFFSET64
typedef __off_t off_t;
# else
typedef __off64_t off_t;
# endif
# define __off_t_defined

If you use the old types, glibc will do the conversion in the syscall wrappers
on architectures that only have the 64-bit interfaces.
