Currently, your changes result in an implicit cast from 64bit to 32bits in DRI2SwapComplete which will cause problems if we really do need those extra bits:

But it could happen on, say, a desktop compositor that's been logged in
for a month.

I think the main reason is that the other two values really need to be
64-bits, so you might as well make all three be 64-bits.
