With the patch proposed by Victor in msg293873 the cross-compilation of posixmodule.c succeeds on android-21-x86 and android-21-x86_64.

Following my suggestion in msg292174, I propose the following patch instead:

diff --git a/Modules/posixmodule.c b/Modules/posixmodule.c
index e8c15a9473..d7ff3c78bd 100644
--- a/Modules/posixmodule.c
+++ b/Modules/posixmodule.c

 #ifdef MS_WINDOWS
     PyStructSequence_SET_ITEM(v, 2, PyLong_FromUnsignedLong(st->st_dev));

This patch removes the conditional on HAVE_LARGEFILE_SUPPORT (explicit is better than implicit) and fixes the problem for any operating system where the size of off_t and the size of st_ino are different.
The compiler removes the dead branch of the <if (sizeof(unsigned long)...> conditional, so actually it compiles to the same binary as the other patch (gcc does this without any optimization configured on the command line, I didn't check this for clang).

The same kind of fix could also be applied elsewhere in posixmodule.c where behind the use of HAVE_LARGEFILE_SUPPORT there is an incorrect assumption that the size of off_t is the same as the size of another type:
  * In _pystat_fromstructstat() - a little bit further down this patch - where the other type is st_size.
  * In os_DirEntry_inode_impl() where the other type is ino_t.
Maybe this should be done in a new issue then ?
