The MessageLength field of EFI_MM_COMMUNICATE_HEADER, as a generic
definition, could be used for both PEI and DXE MM communication. On a
system that supports PEI MM launch, but operates PEI in 32bit mode and MM
foundation in 64bit, the current EFI_MM_COMMUNICATE_HEADER definition
will cause structure parse error due to UINTN used.

This change removes the architecture dependent field by extending this
field definition as UINT64.
