Series [1/3] compat: lift compat_s64 and compat_u64 to <asm-generic/compat.h> | expand

Commit Message

Christoph Hellwig Sept. 17, 2020, 7:41 a.m. UTC
Add a helper to check if the calling syscall needs a fixup for
non-natural 64-bit type alignment in the compat ABI.  This will only
return true for i386 syscalls on x86_64.
