From: Scott Duplichan 

The current types of subexpressions used in QemuFlashPtr() are as follows.
(We also show the types of "larger" subexpressions, according to operator

  mFlashBase + (Lba * mFdBlockSize) + Offset
      ^          ^         ^            ^
      |          |         |            |
   (UINT8*)   EFI_LBA    UINTN        UINTN

  ---------------------------------   ------
              (UINT8*)                UINTN


When building with VS2010 for Ia32 / NOOPT, the 64-by-32 bit
multiplication is translated to an intrinsic, which is not allowed in

Recognize that "Lba" is always bounded by "mFdBlockCount" (an UINTN) here
-- all callers of QemuFlashPtr() ensure that. In addition, the flash chip
in question is always under 4GB, which is why we can address it at all on
Ia32. Narrow "Lba" to UINTN, without any loss of range.
