fix remaining direct use of stat syscalls outside fstatat.c
because struct stat is no longer assumed to correspond to the structure used by the stat-family syscalls, it's not valid to make any of these syscalls directly using a buffer of type struct stat. commit 9493892021eac4edf1776d945bcdd3f7a96f6978 moved all logic around this change for stat-family functions into fstatat.c, making the others wrappers for it. but a few other direct uses of the syscall were overlooked. the ones in tmpnam/tempnam are harmless since the syscalls are just used to test for file existence. however, the uses in fchmodat and __map_file depend on getting accurate file properties, and these functions may actually have been broken one or more mips variants due to removal of conversion hacks from syscall_arch.h. as a low-risk fix, simply use struct kstat in place of struct stat in the affected places.
