[klibc] long long on 32-bit machines

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to know if there are *any* 32-bit architectures (on 
which Linux runs) for which the ABI for a "long long" is different from 
passing two "longs" in the appropriate order, i.e. (hi,lo) for bigendian 
or (lo,hi) for littleendian?

I'd like to switch klibc to use the 64-bit file ABI thoughout, but it's 
a considerable porting effort, and I'm trying to figure out how to best 
manage it.
