In which case whatever writes down that 64bit field can write it into
two 32bit values - and the 'packed' can be killed.

There is the other option of only marking the 64bit field as needing
32bit alignment.

Of course, if it is just a token that is psssed back I see certain
bugs on the horizon when code blindly assumes that the returned
value is one of the ones it sent :-)
