I am puzzled, uid_t and gid_t are 32 bit quantitiers on all platforms I
know, do you know of platforms that use 64 bit uid/gid types ?

If not, why do you use a 64 bit type for them ?

Also uid_t and gid_t are signed in many platforms while here you seem to
be casting to uint64_t, and that doesn't look right to me.

Care to comment ?
