Well, in general they should be the same size as dev_t, and dev_t
needs to be a fixed size because it's a bunch of bits pasted together.

They should probably always be printed as signed long long, though, so
it can in the future be 64-bit on 32-bit machines, so most of your
casts want adjusting. :-/
