Hi Keir, we've come across some more users of 'long' in the hypervisor
interface: xen/include/public/memory.h. Unlike the dom0_ops, we can't
just change these to be 64 bits because 32-bit kernels use these
structures for the balloon driver.

I would like to create a new type, say "legacy_ulong_t", to cover these
cases and future instances we'll undoubtedly come across. What do you

Call them xen_ulong_t and they're fine. They're hardly legacy since there's no suitable non-legacy replacement right now. Don't forget the typedef in the other arch-*.h headers as well.
