I have a better idea, remove the 32-bit limitation.

Create a new HdrS version, add a new member at the end of the bootloader
header area "sparc_ramdisk_image64", set it to ~0 by default, if the
bootloader sets it to some non-~0 value, we use it instead of the
32-bit limited sparc_ramdisk_image value.
