These functions follow the type of atomic64_t which is a "long" wrapped
in a structure. We do not want to change that to unsigned long, are we?
Then having some of the functions operate on "long" and others on
"unsigned long" seem odd.

That is not too bad, the only change I do not like is the s/u8/char/ in
struct ipl_block_fcp.
