Fix fstatat decoding on ppc64

The struct stat64 defined in asm-powerpc/stat.h is only used for ppc32 and
quite different from the struct stat that is always used on ppc64 (which
has no *stat64 syscalls).  The effect of this bug is that everything
printed after st_nlink is wrong.

	* file.c (sys_newfstatat): Don't use printstat64 on ppc64.
