What's your configuration?  Big or little endian, userland ABI, kernel
ABI.  Glibc version.  Kernel version.  What specific things don't work. 
Not even enough information here to make a guess.

You're updating the userspace msqid_ds to match the kernel's
msqid64_ds.  They're not normally the same type.  Rather, see
<linux/msg.h> for the type o32 generally uses.
