__u64 can be unsigned long only if an architecture uses int-l64.h
instead of int-ll64.h. This is currently possible for Alpha and
PPC64 when __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__ is not defined -- I guess you
know what that flag does.
I messed up a bit and didn't notice that samples/bpf/Makefile
defines this flag only for MIPS. IMO it should be defined in here
unconditionally, but I guess it's out of bpf-fixes scope, so I'll
go with unsigned long long in v3 (got to resend with no PGP crap
anyway lol).
