So the larger TYPE_SIZE is in fact correct?  (Note that for this particular
issue bitfields do not matter)

I think we can arrive at a mismatch situation very easily as outlined in my
mail before.  How does RTL expansion handle this in the face of struct
copies?  I guess it's simply taking the size of the target.

They should be exchangable in the context of an access.  At least

  ... = x.a;


  p = &x.a;
  ... = *p;

already have different sizes and that better should not matter(?).
