    Yeah, obviously this is restricted to the signed-integer case. My point
    was just that you could have the compiler figure out which variant to pick
    for loff_t automatically.

    I think I agree. The real (but harder) fix for the wasted space issue
    would be to get the toolchain to automatically combine functions that
    end up compiling into identical assembly.
