Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.52
Severity: normal

For all 32-bit architectures lintian complains if functions using off_t
instead of off64_t are used.  On legacy architectures, this is indeed a good
check, as for old ABI compatibility reasons sizeof(off_t) is only 4.

However, new 32-bit architectures such as x32 have sizeof(off_t)==8, and
functions like lseek() and lseek64() are the same.

These include at least x32 and arm64ilp32.
Thus, could you please drop these architectures from has_lfs checks?

Reported by Thorsten Glaser, initially found in package cvs.  Most packages
don't trigger this warning as "#define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64" pointlessly but
harmlessly aliases off_t to off64_t.
