Re: Bootstrap failure on trunk: x86_64-linux-gnu


    Basically with the way Ada's setting of TYPE_MIN_VALUE/TYPE_MAX_VALUE
    effectively makes them useless as we can not rely on them to 
    actually reflect the set of values allowed in an object.

As we've all told you numerous times before, TYPE_MIN_VALUE/TYPE_MAX_VALUE
are meant *precisely* to refect the set of valid values in an object.
("valid" is a technical term in Ada, while "allowed" is vague, so I'm
using the former term).
