    Properly handle x32 syscall
    X32 syscall() may return 64-bit integer as lseek, time and times.  Its
    return type should be __syscall_slong_t instead of long int.  We need
    to properly return 64-bit error value.
    Before the patch:
    Dump of assembler code for function syscall:
       0x000dab20 <+0>:	mov    %rdi,%rax
       0x000dab23 <+3>:	mov    %rsi,%rdi
       0x000dab26 <+6>:	mov    %rdx,%rsi
       0x000dab29 <+9>:	mov    %rcx,%rdx
       0x000dab2c <+12>:	mov    %r8,%r10
       0x000dab2f <+15>:	mov    %r9,%r8
       0x000dab32 <+18>:	mov    0x8(%rsp),%r9
       0x000dab37 <+23>:	syscall
       0x000dab39 <+25>:	cmp    $0xfffffffffffff001,%rax
       0x000dab3f <+31>:	jae    0xdab42 <syscall+34>
       0x000dab41 <+33>:	retq
       0x000dab42 <+34>:	mov    0x2b3367(%rip),%rcx        # 0x38deb0
       0x000dab49 <+41>:	neg    %eax
       0x000dab4b <+43>:	mov    %eax,%fs:(%rcx)
       0x000dab4e <+46>:	or     $0xffffffff,%eax
                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This is 32-bit error return.
       0x000dab51 <+49>:	retq
    End of assembler dump.
    After the patch:
    Dump of assembler code for function syscall:
       0x000daaf0 <+0>:	mov    %rdi,%rax
       0x000daaf3 <+3>:	mov    %rsi,%rdi
       0x000daaf6 <+6>:	mov    %rdx,%rsi
       0x000daaf9 <+9>:	mov    %rcx,%rdx
       0x000daafc <+12>:	mov    %r8,%r10
       0x000daaff <+15>:	mov    %r9,%r8
       0x000dab02 <+18>:	mov    0x8(%rsp),%r9
       0x000dab07 <+23>:	syscall
       0x000dab09 <+25>:	cmp    $0xfffffffffffff001,%rax
       0x000dab0f <+31>:	jae    0xdab12 <syscall+34>
       0x000dab11 <+33>:	retq
       0x000dab12 <+34>:	mov    0x2b3397(%rip),%rcx        # 0x38deb0
       0x000dab19 <+41>:	neg    %eax
       0x000dab1b <+43>:	mov    %eax,%fs:(%rcx)
       0x000dab1e <+46>:	or     $0xffffffffffffffff,%rax
       0x000dab22 <+50>:	retq
    End of assembler dump.
