The UCD-DISKIO-MIB implementation on 64-bit Linux does not cut long values to 32 bits. The snmpd then spams syslog with "truncating integer value > 32 bits" when the values are getting big.

This simple patch adds necessary truncation to 32 bits, making snmpd quiet, syslog empty and administrators happy.

    Thanks for the patch! It has been applied to the 5.2.x, 5.3.x and 5.4.x code branches and the main development tree, and will appear in future releases of the Net-SNMP package.
