The supposed type mismatch was due to Janne's commit r8-5772:

     PR 78534 Change character length from int to size_t

     In order to handle large character lengths on (L)LP64 targets, switch
     the GFortran character length from an int to a size_t.

     This is an ABI change, as procedures with character arguments take
     hidden arguments with the character length.

LEN_TRIM is of course of type default integer, which is handled fine
in gfc_resolve_len_trim, setting f->ts.kind, the same way as it is
done in gfc_resolve_index_func or elsewhere, and conversions are
properly taken care of as far as I can tell.

Things work(ed) fine for the "scalar" version of LEN_TRIM, even if the
optional KIND argument was present, before the above commit.  But not
the elemental version working on rank>=1 with KIND present.  That did
not change.  See PR87711.

Thinking again, the patch primarily addresses PR87711 (for 11/12) and
fixes some of the comments in PR87851.  We'd need to find out what
exactly is left from the latter.

The dump-tree of the testcase looks fine to me, even when compiling
with -fdefault-integer-8, and I do not see any conversion warnings.

Well, LEN_TRIM is of default integer, unless KIND is given.
