It'll try to read 47 bits worth of 0s on 64bit x86-64.

I haven't tried to wait until that finishes, but I estimate a few months of
CPU time at least.

The interface is just misdesigned, but I guess we cannot do
anything about that for now. LTP will just need to do a workaround.

This unfortunately breaks older LTP versions.
