cfi_desc_to_gfc_desc and gfc_desc_to_cfi_desc from ISO_c_binding.c, right?

Since fixing:



would very likely require passing an additional "kind" parameter (and 
future descriptor unification) that would be a good idea.

I had a patch to do this, passing the kind value, but AFAIR there were 
issues with kind values for C_PTR and C_FUNPTR (and I didn't want to 
mess with the ABI also in one go)... But I might have fixed that 
somewhere else afterwards...

So, I could look further into that. Were would you like them placed?

Yes... I had the same idea... :-) But all those constants are defined in 
"ISO_Fortran_binding.h"... And moving all those definitions would be a 
major change... So I left it as it was...

What do you suggest I do?
