This wrapper checks alignement of pgoff, if page sise is greater than

This two hacks fix an alignment issue. I didn't check all details but
it looks like sizeof(compat_statfs64) is different in kernel and library.
And this size is passed as 2nd argument to compat syscalls. We can
handle it in userspace but I don't see any advantage. 

All this handlers are shared between ilp32 and aarch32.
This is best we came up, as it doesn't add new hacks, but reuses old
