Hi all,

The sys32_sysinfo() calls are currently using an old version of
"struct sysinfo32", in both the mips64 and ia64 ports.

busybox's init can't cope with the bogus output on my Origin 200,
so this bug prevents the Debian installer from bootstrapping.

This is the mips64 version of the patch.  A very similar patch
could be constructed for ia64... it's very obvious what to do,
so I'll leave it to you ia64 people :)
