The cast comes from the beginning of the git history, and probably was needed
when macro CHECK1() was used in syscalls. Now the cast is looking useless, and
breaks build if struct kernel_stat is not declared.

	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/fxstat.c: Remove useless cast.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/lxstat.c: Likewise.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/xstat.c: Likewise.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/fxstat.c: Likewise.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/lxstat.c: Likewise.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/xstat.c: Likewise.

Actually it predates the use of INLINE_SYSCALL.

Ok.

I think you mean "where not needed" in the commit subject.

Yes. Should I resend it?

I also notice you are missing a space between your name and your <email address>
in your Signed-off-by line.  That said, Signed-off-by lines are not common in
glibc repository commits; they are not part of the documented commit process,
so I would avoid including them in your commits.

I'm not sure who is likely to commit your changes, or if you have commit rights
yourself, so I'm not sure how to answer as to whether you need to resend it.

No, I have no that rights. Could someone do it to me?

Yury.
