Each conversion (i.e. I tried the one from patch #1) seems to add
an extra 24 bytes to the resulting code size (using gcc 4.8.4 for
ARM32 cross-compilation) so I don't see much point in the automatic
conversions. Only instances containing size calculations with
real possibility for integer overflows should be converted and
the patchset under discussion contains no such instances.

Best regards,
