Re: [lto] PATCH: preserve precision of odd-sized integral types

I was kind of afraid of that, but I suspect GDB will never see values of
"weird"-sized types produced by the existing front ends, anyway. E.g.,
bit_size_type is used internally in the tree structure for the types of
constants that represent object sizes in bits, but it doesn't correspond
to any C integral type.
However, there are types in other languages (including enumeration types
in C++) that have these weird sizes. So, this is potentially useful
information to GDB, outside of LTO.
