Yes, I think there have been some patches to drivers going in that
An alternative if the warning is in your own code is to use
'unsigned long long' or a user defined 'uval64' directly in
the declaration instead of 'u64'.

C99 also mandates that the macro PRIu64 contains the correct
format string for uint64_t (which afaik is always the same as u64).
It's currently not defined in linux, but could perhaps be added.
