    Actually, if you want to guarantee the size of an integer variable with gcc,
    you can do, for example, this:

    typedef int __attribute__((mode(SI))) siint;

    which creates a 32-bit signed integer type called "siint".

    The "mode" attribute is parameterised with one of the following values to
    indicate the specific size of integer required:

    QI 8-bit
    HI 16-bit
    SI 32-bit
    DI 64-bit
    TI 128-bit
