Surprisingly enough, this replacement of size_t with __kernel_size_t
is not just correct, it's a fix for a more subtle bug on x32, see
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20170302004607.GE27132@altlinux.org

I recommend splitting the change into "include" fix and "size_t" fix
like I did some time ago, see
http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20170302002253.GC27132@altlinux.org
