It seems I made a typo and it needs to be __ILP32__ rather than
__ilp32__ (corrected that locally, will resend once we have resolved

Aside from that, the #if check seems to be correct to me: this
is an x86-specific header, so it won't ever be seen on other
architectures. On x86-32, __x86_64__ isn't set, so we don't care
about whether __ilp32__ is set or not, and on x86-64 (lp64),
__ilp32__ is never set, so we still get the asm-generic header.
