I think that's more than just "looks more correct", it's just wrong to
compare an unsigned to -1, or to assign it.

And there may well be a functional change since gcc is no longer allowed
to assume that the number is +ve and therefore cannot discard some of
these checks any more. We are probably just lucky that gcc isn't doing
so already (and unlucky that it isn't generating a warning...)

I think an int would be sufficiently large for this.
