I replaced all the uses of "long" with intptr_t where it was used to
store pointer values. Similarly "unsigned long" was replaced by
"uintptr_t". In some places the conversions to integer types are
unnecessary, but I didn't try to cleanup the code yet.

Another problem was with the printf format specifiers where I had to
use PRIuPTR / PRIxPTR macros instead of the hard-coded "l" specifier.

Both of these features are specified in C99 standard and should be
available on all systems QEMU runs on. Thanks to malc the code is now
tested to compile on PowerPC host.

Best regards,
