For utilization we never need more then an "unsigned int" as storage
class. Even at RQ level, 32bits allows +4mln tasks.

However we started with long and keep going on with that, this was
just an attempt to incrementally fix that whenever we do some
changes or we add some new code.
But, perhaps a single whole sale update patch would fit better this
job in case we really wanna do it at some point.

I'll drop this change in v8 and keep this patch focused on functional
bits, don't want to risk to sidetrack the discussion again.

Being a pretty "generic" and thus confusing name is not enough? :)

Anyway, same reasoning as above and same conclusions: I'll drop the
renaming so that we don't sidetrack the discussion on v8.

Good point, will do!
