I've been digging into glibc's repo, and since its inclusion into the
32 bit version of dirent (circa 2004), d_type is expected to be at the
end of each record.
I suppose this has passed unnoticed all this time due to the fact that
its implementation into our compat layer is relatively recent (2010)
and its not widely used by applications (most still rely on fstat).
