Subject[PATCH v4 05/24] arm64:ilp32: expose 'kernel_long' as 'long long' for ILP32
From: Andrew Pinski <>

Since we want time_t and some other userland types to be the same
between ILP32 and LP64, we define __kernel_long_t to be long long.

To reuse the bulk of LP64 system calls (and data structures), the LP64
kernel data types ('kernel_long', 'kernel_ulong') are exposed as their
ILP32 'long long' and 'unsigned long long' equivalents to allow glibc
to correctly interpret most data-structures used in the kernel ABI
(i.el with the exception of those, that include pointers).
