Huh?  We have ABI-trouble due long is  too small to hold a
pointer-diff for llp64.  Intended is here 'pointer-size' AFAICS in
code, but with wrong assumption that a 'long' is always long enough.

 Btw I just checked all targets we have right now in gcc.  The type
ptrdiff_t is always either 'long', or 'int' (ilp32, lp64), and 'long
long' for LLP64.  Means ptrdiff_t gets always equal (or bigger) to
biggest pointer-size for target (AFAICS).
