Ah, the introduced file_record_lock RPC takes the flock64, I thought it
was taking the parameters one by one, sorry about that.

Then I'd say that in your patch you can indeed just drop the f_setlk.c
file (which was just meant to be compatibility between fcntl locking and
flock locking), and in fcntl.c, in the 64bit case just call the RPC,
and in the non-64bit case, fill a struct flock64 with the fields of the
struct flock parameter content, and call the RPC, something like:

    case F_GETLK:
    case F_SETLK:
    case F_SETLKW:
        struct flock *fl = va_arg (ap, struct flock *);
        struct flock64 fl64 = {
          .l_type = fl->l_type,
          .l_whence = fl->l_whence,

        err = HURD_FD_PORT_USE (d, __file_record_lock (port, cmd, &fl64));
        result = err ? __hurd_dfail(fd, err) : 0;


    case F_GETLK64:
    case F_SETLK64:
    case F_SETLKW64:
        struct flock64 *fl64 = va_arg (ap, struct flock64 *);
        err = HURD_FD_PORT_USE (d, __file_record_lock (port, cmd, fl64));
        result = err ? __hurd_dfail(fd, err) : 0;
