Hi,

Previously atomic operations returned different types on 32/64 bits. I
think that was pretty unfortunate and could actually lead to lots of
such warnings (as there were no single format specifier that one could
use portably), and was difficult to wrap. So I used "unsigned long
long" for all operations.
I actually suspect that the new zip_main.c code would cause a similar
warning on 32 bits even without my change, because atomic ops already
returned unsigned long long there.
So I think we need to fix zip_main.c.
