    Make ticky work, at least partly, on 64-bit machines · a01188d1

    The ticky StgEntCounter structure was trying to be clever by using a
    fixed-width 32-bit field for the registeredp value.  But the code generators
    are not up to handling structures packed tightly like this (on a 64-bit
    architecture); result seg-fault on 64-bit.
    Really there should be some complaint from the code generators, not simply
    a seg fault.
    Anyway I switched to using native words for StgEntCounter fields, and
    now at least it works.
