'uint64_t' is used to hold pointers in multiple locations in the
copy-mode code (used for kernels before 5.4). For a 32-bit build
this assumption is wrong and results in build errors. This commit
replaces such instances of 'uint64_t' with 'uintptr_t'.

While the copy-mode code will now compile for 32-bit, the PMD is
not expected to work and will fail at initialisation due to some
limitations in the kernel that were subsequently removed in v5.4.
Add a note to the docs to flag this limitation.

Hi Ciara,

As far as I can see the API 'xsk_ring_cons__comp_addr()' returns fixed size 
variable ('__u64'),
and when the PMD is compiled for 32bit, won't it be assigning a 64bit variable 
to the 32bit storage.

I guess libbpf also needs to be adjusted for the 32bit support, what about 
making PMD changes after libbpf changed?

Not sure on this one, 'i' seems not to hold a pointer but index, and result of 
calculation cast to "void *", I assume intention is to prevent calculation 
result to be 64 bit to cover the case "void *" is 4 bytes, for that what do you 
think making variable uint32_t?

Correct. However we can assume the higher 32bits are zero in this case.
The 'addr' we are consuming via this API will be one which we previously enqueued to the buf_ring and we always cast to (void *) on enqueue.

I'm not sure whether this is planned but maybe it makes sense to wait and see rather than relying on assumptions above.

Do you suggest something like:
#ifdef RTE_ARCH_64
       uint64_t i;
#else
       uint32_t i;
#endif

I can submit a v2 with just the doc update and hold off on the other changes until the necessary changes to libbpf are in place. Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Ciara

My concern was if compiler complains about this, since from compiler perspective 
there is a 64 -> 32 bit variable assignment which can lead data loss.

I was thinking only use 32 bit, since 32 -> 64 bit assignment will not cause any 
problem.

+1 to this, after 32 bit libbpf is ready, it can be easier to do changes to the PMD.
