That's only true for 32bit systems.

All in all the patch series looks rather reasonable now, except for
the subject lines and the changelogs.

The only technical objection I have is the macro conversion magic in
patch #6. This can be done in a less cryptic and more efficient way.

See the comments to the various patches and please apply them to all
of the series.
