OK, I added this to linux-next today (as a temporary measure), but it
fails the same way. To be clear, I merged the above branch (without
the rest of the tip tree) and it fails the same way. :-(

It produces these errors (from the x86_64 allmodconfig build):

In file included from /home/sfr/next/next/tools/arch/x86/include/uapi/asm/bitsperlong.h:10:0,
from /usr/include/asm-generic/int-ll64.h:11,

#error Inconsistent word size. Check asm/bitsperlong.h

(and more similar).

I have applied my patch from yesterday ("tools: Simplify
__BITS_PER_LONG define"), and will continue on.
