On what compiler / static analyzer?

See [1] and [2]. I'm pretty sure it is a bug in your tool to warn about
this. The C standard seems pretty clear that the large literal constant
is automatically promoted to a sufficiently large type, so AIUI there
should be no need for such a warning. A standards-compliant compiler
will do the right thing.

It really seems like this type of warning is only appropriate where a
smaller literal constant is immediately operated on such that it will
overflow. e.g.:

		.tRST_max = 250 * 1000 * 1000 * 1000,

But this usually results in a different type of (correct) warning, like:

  warning: integer overflow in expression [-Woverflow]

However, I could be convinced to apply this, if only to satisfy broken
tools and to avoid addressing this question over and over...
