Great! So it does work on x86, on Sparc there were problems.
I updated my patch by introducing a host_phys_addr_t type. There were
a long discussion about host address type, I think the result was that
'unsigned long' works as it ever has except for Win64.
I don't know which is better strategy, do int to unsigned long
conversion first (like your patch) and then replace unsigned long with
host_phys_addr_t, or vice versa. Or direct int -> host_phys_addr_t
which this patch does.
