So isn't this an issue with the code before when we have a RANGE_EXPR
that covers the wrapping point?  Then index > max_index and may not
catch the found element with

    /* Do we have match?  */
    if (wi::cmpu (access_index, index) >= 0
        && wi::cmpu (access_index, max_index) <= 0)
      return cval;

?  We seem to be careful to convert the indices to the index type but
above use unsigned compares - isn't that the underlying issue?  So

I'm not sure how "doing from scratch" would fix things - we simply rely
on reliably detecting an element match.

I wonder how much we can rely on the array domain type to be in sync
with the constructor field entries.

Also we're using offset_int here - doesn't that break when with
Ada we have an array type with domain [uint128_t_max - 1, uint128_t_max + 2]
in a type larger than int128_t?  Or, since we're interpreting it
inconsistently signed/unsigned, a 128bit integer typed domain wraps
around the sign?

If that's not an issue then using signed compare unconditionally is
a valid fix as well I guess.

But in reality 'index' should never really wrap, that is, if the domain
is of 'int' type and starts with INT_MAX then the array shall not have
more than 1 element.  No?

The patch you posted isn't a real fix btw, since iff the break was
hit we either missed an index that is present or we found a gap
but then we can break.

So I'd appreciate more explanation on how the index "wraps".
