[Patch]: Fix ICE on VMS when using SImode pointers


this patch fixes a build time failure on VMS (while compiling Ada RTS file i-cstrin.adb) due to the use of short pointers:

i-cstrin.adb: In function 'Interfaces.C.Strings.To_Chars_Ptr':
i-cstrin.adb:236:8: error: unrecognizable insn:
(insn 80 79 81 13 (set (reg:SI 384)
        (const_int 4294967288 [0xfffffff8])) i-cstrin.adb:234 -1
+===========================GNAT BUG DETECTED==============================+
| Pro 7.1.0w (20120403-47) (ia64-hp-openvms) GCC error:                    |
| in extract_insn, at recog.c:2123                                         |
| Error detected around i-cstrin.adb:236:8                                 |

Expansion of POINTER_PLUS_EXPR doesn't handle the case of PRECISION(sizetype) > PRECISION(type), leading to RTL expressions with different modes.

This patch fixes the build issue, tested on ia64-hp-openvms.
Also tested with our internal testsuite.
I haven't run the GCC testsuite on a regular platform, as the condition will never trigger.

Ok for trunk ?
