[PATCH] lib: Fix bug in int_sqrt() for 64 bit longs

The implementation of int_sqrt() assumes that longs have 32 bits. On
systems that have 64 bit longs this will result in gross errors when the
argument to the function is greater than 2^32 - 1 on such systems. I doubt
whether any such use is currently made of int_sqrt() but the attached patch
fixes the problem anyway.
