[PATCH v3 3/3] lib: Add strongly typed 64bit int_sqrt




There is no option to perform 64bit integer sqrt on 32bit platform.
Added stronger typed int_sqrt64 enables the 64bit calculations to
be performed on 32bit platforms. Although int_sqrt() is a rough
approximation, the same algorithm is used in int_sqrt64() as good
enough on 32bit platform.
