[PATCH v6 05/19] arm64:uapi: set __BITS_PER_LONG correctly for ILP32 and LP64

From: Andrew Pinski <apinski at cavium.com>

Define __BITS_PER_LONG depending on the ABI used (i.e. check whether
__ILP32__ or __LP64__ is defined).  This is necessary for glibc to
determine the appropriate type definitions for the system call interface.
