OK, here we go:

   struct __dirent {
      uint64_t __d_off;                 /* "magic cookie" */
      _T_INO_T __d_ino;                 /* file number of entry */
      short    __d_reclen;              /* length of this record */
      short    __d_namlen;              /* length of string in d_name */
      char     __d_name[_MAXNAMLEN + 1];/* name must be no longer than this */

Note that sizeof(_T_INO_T) varies depending on your system's bit-ness,
so this is really two structure definitions.

The d_off structure member is an offset for that directory entry.  I
don't know if anybody in user-space ever uses it; I doubt it.
