From: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

Yuri Norov says:

  If parameter size is the same for native and compat ABIs, we may
  wire a syscall made by compat client to native handler. This is
  true for unsigned int, but not true for unsigned long or pointer.

  That's why I suggest using unsigned int and so avoid creating compat
  entry point.

Use unsigned int as the type of the flags parameter in memfd_secret()
system call.

Signed-off-by: Mike Rapoport <rppt@linux.ibm.com>

The patch is vs v5.12-rc5-mmots-2021-03-30-23, I'd appreciate if it would
be added as a fixup to the memfd_secret series.
