no, uclibc does the samething glibc does

each arch defines the stat structure as the kernel sees it and then converts 
it to the same stat structure for everyone regardless of architecture

thus the only people who care about the kernel craziness is the libc ... 
userland programs use stat() as defined by the libc and everything is peachy
