Thanks, Dave. When I created the patch, I was concern about this.
I will change the MIBs counters to 'u32' or 'u64'.

"sizeof(unsigned long)" evaluates to 8 on 64-bit systems,
yet you assume it always evaluated to 4 as on 32-bit systems.

Maybe it would be wiser to explicitly use 'u32' and 'u64' for
the types of the snmp counters?

This has always been a sore area.
