What for?  I mean, is there any reason to try and keep those bugs as
first-class citizens?  IDGI...  Yes, we have several special files
(out of thousands) that have read()/write() user-visible semantics
broken wrt 32bit/64bit.  And we have to keep them working that way
for existing syscalls.  Why would we want to pretend that their
behaviour is normal and isn't an ABI bug, not to be repeated for
anything new?
