For kernel part, in "include/uapi/asm-generic/posix_types.h":
     #ifndef __kernel_long_t
     typedef long            __kernel_long_t;
     typedef unsigned long   __kernel_ulong_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_off_t;
in "include/linux/types.h":
     typedef __kernel_off_t          off_t;

"include/uapi/asm-generic/posix_types.h" is uapi, we could not check
"ARCH_32BIT_OFF_T" here. Besides, the `__kernel_long_t` is long which
mean it is 32bit in ILP32. should we define something like x32?
     diff --git a/arch/arm64/include/uapi/asm/posix_types.h b/arch/arm64/include/uapi/asm/posix_types.h

After this definition, the following kernel types is 64bit in ILP32:
     typedef __kernel_long_t         __kernel_suseconds_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_ssize_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_ptrdiff_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_off_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_time_t;
     typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_clock_t;
     typedef __kernel_ulong_t __kernel_ino_t;
     typedef __kernel_ulong_t __kernel_size_t;

But it is not a generic way to define off_t to 64bit if
ARCH_32BIT_OFF_T is not defined. How about this one? We need to
define `__kernel_off_t` on all the old 32bit architecture like
diff --git a/arch/arm/include/uapi/asm/posix_types.h b/arch/arm/include/uapi/asm/posix_types.h
index d2de9cb..f9d065c 100644

+typedef __kernel_long_t        __kernel_off_t;
+#define __kernel_off_t
  #include <asm-generic/posix_types.h>

And We could change the generic posix_types.h a little bit:
diff --git a/include/uapi/asm-generic/posix_types.h b/include/uapi/asm-generic/posix_types.h

  typedef __kernel_long_t        __kernel_clock_t;

On the other hand, glibc define it own off_t in "bits/types.h":
     __STD_TYPE __OFF_T_TYPE __off_t;        /* Type of file sizes and offsets.  */
     __STD_TYPE __OFF64_T_TYPE __off64_t;    /* Type of file sizes and offsets (LFS).  */

in "sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/aarch64/bits/typesizes.h":
     #define __OFF_T_TYPE            __SLONGWORD_TYPE
     #define __OFF64_T_TYPE          __SQUAD_TYPE

If we define off_t as 64bit in glibc:
     #define __OFF_T_TYPE           __SQUAD_TYPE

Should We need to align all the off_t syscall to 64bit syscall in
