On which architecture?

The code in libc/sysdeps/linux/common/statfs.c is just a trivial  
syscall wrapper, there's no marshalling of data back and forth between  
kernel/user structures that I noticed. But libc/misc/statfs/statfs64.c  
is crazy and stupid and has no reason to exist, what on earth is it  
doing? Why is it doing it? The mind boggles.

Right, I can copy one more field in this pointless data marshalling  
wrapper. (Long-term: migrating to musl.) In the meantime, something  
like the attached?

(What's your use case, by the way? What package did this break?)
