This PR pointed out that Apple now has enums with different values in 32-bit and 64-bit


Unchecked code should be fine for unsigned values, but not for signed:

csharp> unchecked ((uint) ulong.MaxValue == uint.MaxValue);
csharp> unchecked ((int) long.MaxValue == int.MaxValue);    

we already have some code for return values: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/blob/master/src/generator.cs#L3879-L3887

> we should detect them first (xtro?) and see how to expose them correctly


Honestly I'm not sure how to handle them yet - but we need to know them first.

If there's only a few we could add some helper (extension ?) methods like:

> value.IsUnknown ()

that will check an integer (int or long) value depending if run on 32 or 64 bits OS.
