I see. So kprobe_multi.syms and kprobe_multi.addrs will be 'long'
and 32-bit user space will have an issue with the 64-bit kernel.
Let's fix it properly.
We can remove sizeof(u64) != sizeof(void *) and keep libbpf as-is
by keeping syms and addrs 'long' in uapi.
As far as I can see 32-bit user space on a 32-bit kernel
should work with existing code.
in_compat_syscall() can be used to extend addrs/syms.
