I downgraded my glibc from 2.17-196 (a centos 7.4 version) to
2.17-157 was able to reproduce this issue. I also tried modifying
the params in all `TEST(ltp_syscall(__NR_process_vm...` calls, seemd
that this is the only one causes (and solves) the failure:

        TEST(ltp_syscall(__NR_process_vm_readv, pids[0], local, NUM_LOCAL_VECS,
-                                  remote, nr_iovecs, 0));
+                                  remote, nr_iovecs, 0UL));

If we have enough time we might want to do a bisect between
glibc-2.17-157 and 196 to dig into the real problem behind the simple
fix, but for now I'm agree to convert all int params to correct unsigned
long changed by this commit, so that we can get rid of any potential

Jason, can you make an updated patch to include Li Wang's and Jan's
