Subject[RFC PATCH 00/10] Use __kernel_[u]long_t for x32 user space compatibility
Date
From: H.J. Lu <hjl.tools@gmail.com>

This patch set changes a number of places where the kernel headers are
exported to user space and currently use explicit "long" or "unsigned
long" to use __kernel_[u]long_t in order to be compatible with the x32
user space ABI. These location are places where x32 uses the x86-64
ABI.

It is quite possible that some, or even all, of these locations should
really use dedicated types, but in the meantime this gives the correct
results which the current headers do not.
