[PATCH] kfifo: DECLARE_KIFO_PTR(fifo, u64) does not work on arm 32 bit

From: Matthew Weber

From: Sean Young <sean@xxxxxxxx>

If you try to store u64 in a kfifo (or a struct with u64 members),
then the buf member of __STRUCT_KFIFO_PTR will cause 4 bytes
padding due to alignment (note that struct __kfifo is 20 bytes
on 32 bit).

That in turn causes the __is_kfifo_ptr() to fail, which is caught
by kfifo_alloc(), which now returns EINVAL.

So, ensure that __is_kfifo_ptr() compares to the right structure.

This patch originally made it into 4.16 as
8a866fee3909c49738e1c4429a8d2b9bf27e015d but is a bug on at least 4.14
for any 32bit system(PPC/ARM/...) using kfifo with u64 datatypes.

Please add to linux-4.14.y for the next LTS tag.
(Below patch is a cherry-pick of the commit onto linux-4.14.y and was
verified on 32bit hardware.)
