I gave it a try, but I afraid it's not that simple. The "long" variable
are now 64 bit and can no
longer be assigned to "int" variable which remain at 32 bit. More 32->64
bit code porting
as to go on.

The 2 fundamental questions:

1- to break or not to break the build on 64 bit system
2- to skip or not to skip 32 bit assembler code to have successful (not
runnable) build

My preference goes with a full compile on 64 bit, which goes against
common sense.
It is the most helpful scenario in the specific context of the X.Org
release flow.
There are many drivers that build on platforms which do not use them.

I appreciate everyone's input, I did not expect such an interest.
