Isn't this wrapping artificial? old_stats is of type
rtnl_link_stats64, so the counters are 64 bit.

state is also rtnl_link_stats64 so has 64 bit counters. So this code
is throwing away the upper 32 bits.

Why not use include/linux/u64_stats_sync.h, which should cost you
nothing on 64 bit machines, and do the right thing on 32 bit machines.
