Please do not extend it to 64-bit on i386. 64-bit variables consume more 
registers and enlarge the binary code. GRUB does not have to be very precise 
about the time, so I prefer 32-bit here for all architectures. If you have a 
good reason to use 64-bit except that the native representation is 64-bit, 
let me know.
