These notes apply to any 32-bit platform that may default to a 32-bit
off_t (including not only x86 and ARM, but also C-SKY, HP-PA, m68k,
MicroBlaze, MIPS, Nios II, PowerPC, s390, SPARC, and SuperH).  Is
there a need to specify "x86 and ARM", or could these three words be
omitted from each of the notes?
