Thanks for analyzing.

I guess this means I screwed up when I said I'd merged the kernel patch
that Yury did to fix it, sorry about that.
We need the patch to make all new architecture in the kernel default to
O_LARGEFILE, and not do this in user space. I'd suggest now to keep the
patches as part of the ILP32 series after all, to make sure they are
merged at the point when they are needed.

This looks like there is another bug as well, but I think this is in
libc, not in the kernel. I'm sure we had discussed this at some point
but I forgot what the outcome was. Defining 'struct flock' to have a
32-bit l_start and l_len member cannot be right if the kernel only
supports 64-bit offsets.
My guess is that the libc should either not define __off_t at all for
ILP32, and always use __off64_t in struct flock, or __off_t should
be defined as __kernel_loff_t a.k.a. long long so the #ifdef can be
What exactly do you need to define F_GETLK64 for on LP64?
