Perhaps, nothing.
It breaks only 64 bit arch.  I think 64 bit arch will deployed more
aftertime.  If we plan to fix this up in the future, it is better to
fix as soon as possible, IMHO.

In anyway, there is one more issue in my patch.  We cannot correct 1st
argument of getnetbyaddr(3) without breaking ABI compatibility.
Fortunately, getnetbyaddr(3) is not refered else where in our
libraries.  So, I'll fix getnetbyaddr(3).
