Integers are 32-bit on all platforms we support.  Moreover, long is
32-bit on all platforms we support except SPARC, which is basically on
life support (I didn't look at the x86_64 EFI changes yet).

Anyway, I'd like to stop this thread until I have specific code.
Otherwise, I have to explain what I mean instead of showing it.
