Yeah, while technically they are correct (size_t and ssize_t differ in
signedness),
they only happen for cris, which has different base types for (s)size_t
(size_t = unsigned int, ssize_t = long), which is actually incorrect. Still
on my list of things to fix...

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
