ino_t is already __ino64_t when _FILE_OFFSET_BITS is 64 (ignoring the lack
of 64-bit ino_t in the kernel stat64 interface on SH). 64-bit time_t
interfaces on 32-bit systems will require major new work in both glibc and
the Linux kernel (including new versions of various syscalls, though
presumably only the relevant syscalls that are in the generic ABI and not
the legacy ones).
