BTW, it's worse: both fadivse64 and fadvise64_64 are wired, neither of them
has a wrapper and arguments are (s32, s64, u32, s32) and (s32, s64, s64, s32)
resp. The former is OK unless you have restrictions on register pairs that
can be used for 64bit; the latter is past the 5-register limit no matter what,
so the wrapper is really needed.
