Any new 32-bit port that uses 64-bit time_t will also use 64-bit offsets 
(because we don't have any glibc configurations that support the 
combination of 64-bit time with 32-bit offsets, and don't want to add 
them).  That should apply for RISC-V 32-bit at least.

I've filed <https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=24050> for 
missing overflow checks in telldir when the default off_t is wider than 
long int (currently just applies to x32; not sure why we don't see glibc 
test failures on x32 resulting from the quiet truncation, as the issue is 
certainly there in the source code).
