This patch will cause some regressions on other platforms.  In
particular, the change from %zu to %d is incorrect.  Solaris 5.8 is
ancient... no stdint.h?  I doubt the most recent two or three releases
of Solaris have this issue.  In any case, we may be faced with
abstracting out the %zu format specifiers for Windows, so we can
probably make one solution work for both platforms.

The ffsl() implementation is quite inefficient.  It would be better if
it were based on ffs() instead.

I tend to actively develop jemalloc only on platforms that I actively
use (Linux, OS X, FreeBSD), but I'm willing to integrate support for
other platforms, as long as it isn't harmful to the existing platform
