This is a bit pedantic, but I'm not sure what the right answer is here:
"-march=rv64gc -mabi=ilp32d" will not define __LP64__, but will define
"__riscv_xlen == 64". I actually don't know enough about how an rv64gc/ilp32d
ABI would work to answer this: would we have "long long" all over our syscalls?

Probably not worth worrying about for now, as we'll have to go audit all of
these if we ever end up with an ilp32 ABI. So just go for it and we'll throw
this on the pile to deal with later :)
