The first argument to rte_bsf32_safe was incorrectly declared as
a 64 bit value. The code only works on 32 bit values and the underlying
function rte_bsf32 only accepts 32 bit values. This was a mistake
introduced when the safe version was added and probaly cause
by copy/paste from the 64 bit version.

The bug passed silently under the radar until some other code was
built with -Wall and -Wextra in C++ and C++ complains about the
missing cast.

Yes, this is a API signature change, but the original code was wrong.
It is an inline so not an ABI change.

Fixes: 4e261f551986 ("eal: add 64-bit bsf and 32-bit safe bsf functions")
