There's a difference between explicitly not handling it and silently
passing a wrong value.

WCHAR_TYPE_SIZE is wrong because it doesn't account for flag_short_wchar.
As far as I can see only ada/gcc-interface/targtyps.c uses WCHAR_TYPE_SIZE
now. TYPE_PRECISION (wchar_type_node) / BITS_PER_UNIT is what should be
