I don't feel too strongly about it, but it would be nice either to have a cast in the code to the target type to shut it up, or alternatively, use the intptr_t type so that that the sizes are the same.  Since this is compile only, a cast would work.  As a general rule, if a test case runs, I think we'd need the intptr_t type involved.

Can you give that a try, as then we don't have to have any special flags for any target and the test case is then more portable?

If the edits are too much, your patch is fine.  I'm hoping someone reduced the test case and it is small with very few changes required, but I didn't look at the test case.
