I'm not sure I understand the logic here. I'd think either the value
fits in a signed HOST_WIDE_INT, and we use add_AT_int, or it doesn't,
and we use add_AT_double:

  if (host_integerp (value, 0))
    add_AT_int (enum_die, DW_AT_const_value, TREE_INT_CST_LOW (value));
    add_AT_double (enum_die, DW_AT_const_value,
                   TREE_INT_CST_HIGH (value), TREE_INT_CST_LOW (value));

Why wouldn't that work? I'd think this would even eliminate the need
for the comment about signed vs. unsigned.
