Rather than trying to solve this in the LALR parser (which
might involve a major rewrite of the grammer in this case),
the easiest way is to adapt the _lexer_ to produce two
different tokens for "long" and for "long long": The lexer
(ocamllex) always goes for the longest match, and in this
case this is what you want ;-).
