Bug#336608: libc6: malloc_stats and mallinfo gives wrong values with memory-allocatiion >4GB on amd64

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.5-6
Severity: important

Both functions mallinfo and malloc_stats (malloc.h) report wrong
allocation sizes while allocating more that 4GB on amd64 machines. Since
the struct mallinfo-structure consists of integer there must be some
error converting the values from the kernel into libc. Other processes
like ps or top give correct results.
