But surely that structure layout would be the same on ARM and ARC
as well as all other 32-bit architectures with _TIME_BITS=64, right?

What's wrong with having a single implementation for the most
recent set of stat syscalls, with the older variants being only compiled
for architectures that need them to support _TIME_BITS=32 and/or
