[vbox-dev] queryBitmapInfo in Java API returns no image address

Is casting the pointer to a byte (and sending it the same way as T_I8) not
a good solution to this? As the Java API already uses the byte type.
Could it cause issues? (I'm not very experienced with C++.)
Using the Pointer class in JNA I believe I could work with a byte or int
