[PATCH] xfsdump: don't assume getdents exists

New Linux ports are using a standard syscall list that does not include
deprecated syscalls where 64-bit clean alternatives exist. As a result,
on arm64, __NR_getdents is undefined, resulting in xfsdump failing to

To avoid that, in the case where __NR_getdents is unset in unistd.h,
avoid building the fallback path entirely, since
__ASSUME_GETDENTS64_SYSCALL will be true, the SYS_getdents64 case will
be the primary (and only) path used.
