For most purposes these modes need to be regarded as having their full
storage size. Thus, TYPE_SIZE, TYPE_SIZE_UNIT, and TYPE_ALIGN should
be consistent with GET_MODE_SIZE and GET_MODE_ALIGNMENT, not with
That's not what the code in layout_type does. What it does is copy
GET_MODE_BITSIZE to TYPE_SIZE and GET_MODE_SIZE to TYPE_UNIT_SIZE. The
right thing happens here by accident due to the alignment.
I don't see how to make Ada work with this sort of definition, though,
because it mixes the number of signifcant bits and number of bits in the
stored data in a way that I don't see how to separate. Perhaps somebody
who knows more can figure out what to do.
