Subject: [PATCH v2] pass AT_NO_AUTOMOUNT when emulating fstatat via statx

AT_NO_AUTOMOUNT is implied for stat/lstat/fstatat syscalls since Linux
3.1 [1]. However, this is not the case for statx syscall, which defaults
to automounting, so this flag must be passed explicitly when statx is
used to implement stat-like functions.

This change affects only arches which use 32-bit seconds in struct kstat,
as well as out-of-tree/future ports to arches which lack SYS_fstatat.

Fixed the wrong statement about affected arches in the commit message.
