[fpc-pascal]constant longword problem

Using fpc 1.0.10 on FreeBSD ig do this:

USB_DO_REQUEST : longword = 3222820207;

and the compiler says:

usb_h.pp(43,39) Error: Illegal expression

Why thar? The maximum value of longword is bigger, and if i declare it
to be longint it compiles. But this constant is to be used for an
ioctl() and I'm afraid, the signed value will not work.

USB_DO_REQUEST : longint =  -1072147089;
