I need a way to refer to a dword. Is there a way to define a variable with a size that doesn't change even for different compile settings. I need a way to declare a dword to access portions of Grub's boot structure passed to my kernel. I'd like to keep from using int or anything else that would change if I decide to compile as 64 bit, so if I decide to latter, it'll be easier to port it.
No code to show yet... this question is kinda a prerequisite.
