It depends on what your driver does. Without much more information it is difficult to make a valid assessment.

I see this is a duplicate of a post from 4 days ago. I have deleted the original.

Those aren't really distinct data types. Just typedefs to overload the types for compatibility purposes.
The intent is, if you use those types then your code will compile without errors in both 32 bit and 64 bit modes.

yout internal data doenst matter. You need to watch out your external interfaces.
At best you compile on warning level 4. It is a lot of stupid work....
