[RFC PATCH for 4.18 01/23] uapi headers: Provide types_32_64.h (v2)




Provide helper macros for fields which represent pointers in
kernel-userspace ABI. This facilitates handling of 32-bit
user-space by 64-bit kernels by defining those fields as
32-bit 0-padding and 32-bit integer on 32-bit architectures,
which allows the kernel to treat those as 64-bit integers.
The order of padding and 32-bit integer depends on the
endianness.

Changes since v1:
- Public uapi headers use __u32 and __u64 rather than uint32_t and
  uint64_t.
