and int can not be different? If we want be standard complaint it must be
long, because long is at least 32 bits for sure, but int can be only 16

Actually, doesn't matter if it is 32 or 64 bits, because we are interested
only in the low 32 bits, but if you want to be sure that you are going to have
only 32 bits, then use int32_t.
