This is valid C, not even a coding style error, and this is a rather
common use of unsigned types, and sometimes necessary to avoid
undefined behavior (think of "-LONG_MIN", which needs to be done
in unsigned arithmetic, e.g. "- (unsigned long) LONG_MIN", because
-LONG_MIN is not representable as a signed long).
