... because it is based on an unrelated predicate.

The size of any C type (including "long") is irrelevant to 
the size of word_mode.

This change is unnecessary because this is the *probe*, i.e.
the load or store to the stack.  This could happen in *any*
mode -- it just needs to be any reasonably efficient type.

This is the same value appready produced by expr.h.  You really
need to understand how word_mode is defined.

Patch rejected.
