I think all 32-bit architectures:

#ifndef __kernel_size_t
#if __BITS_PER_LONG != 64
typedef unsigned int    __kernel_size_t;
typedef int             __kernel_ssize_t;
typedef int             __kernel_ptrdiff_t;
typedef __kernel_ulong_t __kernel_size_t;
typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_ssize_t;
typedef __kernel_long_t __kernel_ptrdiff_t;
