this layout is slightly less common than the old generic one, but only
because x86_64 and x32 wrongly (according to comments in the kernel
headers) copied the i386 padding. for future archs, and with 64-bit
time_t on 32-bit archs, the new layout here will become the most
common, and it makes sense to treat it as the generic.
various padding fields in the generic bits/sem.h were defined in terms
of time_t as a cheap hack standing in for "kernel long", to allow x32
to use the generic version of the file. this was a really bad idea, as
it ended up getting copied into lots of arch-specific versions of the
bits file, and is a blocker to changing time_t to 64-bit on 32-bit
this commit adds an x32-specific version of the header, and changes
padding type back from time_t to long (currently the same type on all
archs but x32) in the generic header and all the others the hack got
all bits headers that were identical for a number of 'clean' archs are
moved to the new arch/generic tree. in addition, a few headers that
differed only cosmetically from the new generic version are removed.
additional deduplication may be possible in mman.h and in several
headers (limits.h, posix.h, stdint.h) that mostly depend on whether
the arch is 32- or 64-bit, but they are left alone for now because
greater gains are likely possible with more invasive changes to header
logic, which is beyond the scope of this commit.
