Patch for add FT_EUI64 Field Type (Working Release...)

Thanks ! but there is not ftype-ether.c (but it is on ftype-bytes.c )

I start to work in this subject but i have some problem/answer

I based my code on FT_ETHER type, no problem for add FT_EUI64 in

But there is a proto_tree_add_eui64 function in
dissectors/packet-ieee802145.[ch] file.

The problem is the type of value attribute, the type is not the same between my
code (guint8* value) and ieee802145 dissector (guint64 value).

I easily convert some proto_tree_add_eui64 to proto_tree_add_item with FT_EUI64
Field Type. (See /* HELP ME ... */ in packet-ieee802145.c and
I have not found how to convert a guint64 to a pointer (guint8* )

my answer is what it is better ? a value attribut in guint64 or pointer ?

I attach a patch of my working (the code is not checked and fuzzed...)
