I think if I had any really good ideas I'd have done it at the time :/
Converting to unsigned long long is going to hurt performance for the
common case but it'd probably be what we need to do, I think we'd need
to have some sort of preprocessor fun and build two copies of the code
with a 64 bit clean version available for devices that need it which is
ugly but bleh. It's how we handle similar issues with zlib.
