2.3 -> 2.4: long int too large to convert to int

I give up, how do I make this not fail under 2.4?

  fcntl.ioctl(self.dev.fileno(),0xc0047a80,struct.pack("HBB",0x1c,0x00,0x00))

I get an OverflowError: long int too large to convert to int

ioctl() is expecting a 32-bit integer value, and 0xc0047a80 has
the high-order bit set.  I'm assuming Python thinks it's a
signed value.  How do I tell Python that 0xc0047a80 is an
unsigned 32-bit value?
