I'm not convinced that this doesn't break the use case in #773412
[1] since you're looking to define the type at compile-time[2], and
that's precisely why #773412 came about. We'll end up replacing a
bug in an unofficial port for a bug in an official port.

If I read that correctly, #773412 fixed i386 on an i386 kernel.  As you can
see in the dumps above, i386 userland on an amd64 kernel receives a 32-bit
field rather than 64-bit that patch wants.

It's for 32-bit efivar/efibootmgr on 64-bit kernel with 32-bit UEFI (which is why 32-bit efithings are used).
