Cast 64 bit off_t to 32 bit size_t
Some systems have sizeof(off_t) == 8 while sizeof(size_t) == 4. This implies that we are able to access and work on files whose maximum length is around 2^63-1 bytes, but we can only malloc or mmap somewhat less than 2^32-1 bytes of memory. On such a system an implicit conversion of off_t to size_t can cause the size_t to wrap, resulting in unexpected and exciting behavior. Right now we are working around all gcc warnings generated by the -Wshorten-64-to-32 option by passing the off_t through xsize_t(). In the future we should make xsize_t on such problematic platforms detect the wrapping and die if such a file is accessed. Signed-off-by: Shawn O.
