[LLVMdev] why is gc.root 8 bits?

I'm trying to add gcoot functionality to my code and I'm confused by why
gcroot is assuming to be an i8**

I'm using i32 as object and array pointers and if I make them i8 things
seem to work.

I'm generating IR much like

void @llvm.gcroot(i8** %ptrloc, i8* %metadata)
