Thanks all for replying and giving suggestions. I've sent two patches in
another thread, and I've already setup git send-email, cool! It's way easy
to send patches on command lines.

Personally, I'd like to use PRI-prefix, because it looks more standard. But
casting and stick it with %llx should be OK for all platforms.
