Well ... this was debated a while ago ad nauseam:

http://marc.info/?t=117699555300010

The main objection to what you propose is that it forces the u64
coercion even in the 32 bit start_blk case. The preferred solution as a
result of that debate was simply to us a macro Andrew introduced:

upper_32_bits()

Which will silently replace zero in the non LBD case. I actually
thought this had already been done.
