If we did not have UI_SET_PHYS in its current form, I'd agree with you,
but I think there is benefit in having UI_SET_UNIQ be similar to
UI_SET_PHYS.

But you are absolutely correct that in current form the patch is
deficient on 64/32 systems, and the compat handling needs to be added
before it can be accepted.

Thanks.
