Now I remembered. Here is another patch. Here

#if __BITS_PER_LONG == 64

means

#ifdef __x86_64__

Change __BITS_PER_LONG to __BITS_PER_LONG_AS_SEEN_BY_KERNEL
may avoid this confusion.

Define __statfs_word as __kernel_long_t

When __BITS_PER_LONG is 64, define __statfs_word as __kernel_long_t
instead of long for user space.
