Using long is exactly what I intend to do. The problem that I am trying
to resolve is to sign-extend signed memory offsets of 32-bit programs
running on 64-bit kernels. For 64-bit programs running on 64-bit kernels
I can simply use longs. I added error checking in my v7 of this series

Thanks and BR,
