The ffi_prep_args function in libffi_msvc/ffi.c needs the attached patch to handle 64-bit parameters with the correct padding.

Without this patch, garbage may appear in the top part of 64-bit arguments as the values are not zeroed out by the memcpy.

I'm not 100% sure who 'owns' this file - is there an upstream project that should get the patch rather than Python? If not, I see no reason not to check this in now, even though it doesn't seem to repro with the VC10 builds.
