[ Upstream commit 2531be413b3f2f64c0282073de89fe52bbcbbab5 ]

Commit 085219f79cad89291699bd2bfb21c9fdabafe65f
("sparc32: use proper types in struct stat")

Accidently changed the struct stat uid/gid members
to uid_t and gid_t, but those get set to
__kernel_uid32_t and __kernel_gid32_t respectively.
Those are of type 'int' but the structure is meant
to have 'short'. So use uid16_t and gid16_t to
correct this.
