True, but I agree with Richard that I'm not comfortable changing these
tests in order to support the m32c target.  Making this change really
requires looking back to see why each test case was added.  I second
Richard's suggestion of simply skipping these tests on 16-bit targets.
That is what we have historically done.  We're not talking about all
that many tests here; the m32c will still be well tested.

But that would change the tests in a different way.
