I was intended to do like this but failed to find a proper way.

Makefile isn't designed for any kind of calculation.
And shell variables are 64-bit signed so it can't hold such a huge variable.

Just wish somebody can give me a way to do like:

ifndef CONFIG_64BIT
load-y = $(load-y) & 0xffffffff
endif

In makefiles.

Thanks.
