linux-user: Fix getdents emulation for 64 bit guest on 32 bit hostdirent
Currently we mishandle emulation of the getdents syscall for the case of a 64 bit guest on a 32 bit host -- it defaults into the 'host and guest same size' codepath and generates incorrect structures in the guest buffer. We can't easily handle the 64-on-32 case using the host getdents syscall, because the guest struct dirent is bigger than the host struct dirent, and we might find the host syscall has handed us back more records than we can fit in the guest buffer after conversion. Instead, always emulate 64-on-32 getdents with the host getdents64. This avoids the buffer-overrun problem because a dirent64 struct is always the same size on any host and always larger than any architecture's dirent struct.
