Can someone please help me review this small makefile patch to
fix an issue with java.io.File::setLastModified on 32-bit


If the file size is > 2GB so that the size won't fit in a signed
32-bit off_t all stat() calls will fail with EOVERFLOW. This causes
the native method UnixFileSystem::setLastModifiedTime to fail as it
uses stat() to preserve the access time. It also causes other methods
like File::length and File::lastModified to return 0.

Fix by defining _FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 when building
UnixFileSystem_md.c, this will make off_t 64 bits.

Found on ARM32 but I believe this affects 32-bit x86 too. Checked for
no new Jtreg regressions with this patch.
