The type of the argument is configuration dependent, this is because
sometimes one of the terms to define ENA_XDP_MAX_MTU is PAGE_SIZE and
sometimes it is SZ_16K.  And this determines whether it evaluates to
a long or not.

So your patch will just cause warnings in other configurations.

A better fix is therefore necessary.
