The only difference between layout.std and layout.here is the sizeof
struct info_if_stats is 140 bytes everywhere else, and on these two
platforms the structure is 144 bytes.

On both platforms the offset of the last structure member (a uchar) is
136 (as expected), so this seems to be a structure padding issue.
