Commit 31c984a5acabea5d8c7224dc226453022be46f33 introduced a new syscall
getdents64. However, in the syscall table, the new syscall still refers
to the old getdents which doesn't work.

The problem appeared with a system that uses the eglibc 2.12-r11187
(that utilizes that new syscall) is very confused. The fix has been
tested with that eglibc version.

Thanks Bernhard!

Wouldn't it make sense to put that fix also in the stable tree (2.6.35.6)?
