and then it sets the mpz to signed -1, given that I'm passing false to UNS:

/* Sets RESULT to VAL, taken unsigned if UNS is true and as signed
   otherwise.  */

mpz_set_double_int (mpz_t result, double_int val, bool uns)

I don't know what a canonical INTEGER_CST is.

Here are the cases that can occur:
- translating to mpz a -1U as the upper bound of an unsigned type,
in which case I do not want it to be sign extended,
- translating to mpz a -1U constant in an unsigned expression "x + -1U"
in which I do want it to be sign extended.

In my opinion there is not enough information to decide whether
to sign extend or not the value in tree_int_to_gmp.
