Getdents system call was superseded with with getdents64 in Linux 2.4 (January 2001). New architectures, such as 64-Bit ARM opt out not to support legacy system calls, and getdents is one of them. 

Since getdents64 has been supported for over a decade, I don't think adding ifdef to support both makes sense. Using getdents64 cleans up the current _posixsubprocess code as the entries are long long everywhere.

The attached patch makes _posixsubprocess module compile on 64-Bit ARM and causes on regressions on the python3.3 testsuite on x86 and x86_64
