Summary: bz2module.c compiler warning

Initial Comment:
On Python HEAD, there's a new warning while 
compiling bz2module.c (MSVC 7.1):

python\Modules\bz2module.c(1095) : warning 
C4244: '=' :
   conversion from 'Py_off_t' to 'int', possible loss of data

Looks like a legitimate complaint to me.  The line in 
question:

	readsize = offset-bytesread;

Those have types int, Py_off_t, and int respectively.  Is 
it true that offset-bytesread _necessarily_ fits in an int?  
If so, a comment should explain why, and a cast should 
be added to squash the warning.  Or If the difference 
doesn't necessarily fit in an int, the code is wrong.

Applied the newest patch. The warnings should be gone now.
bz2module.c r1.26, 1.23.2.3.

The new patch works fine on this end.

Raymond, did you read the error output and verify that you're 
not suffering from the sample3.bz2 problem it explains?

"""
All six of the fc's should find no differences.
If fc finds an error on sample3.bz2, this could be
because WinZip's 'TAR file smart CR/LF conversion'
is too clever for its own good. Disable this option.
The correct size for sample3.ref is 120,244. If it
is 150,251, WinZip has messed it up.
"""

Since the error you saw did come from sample3.bz2, that 
would be a good thing to check ;-)

Tackled the two warnings (tell() should return a long int if
64 bits) with new patch.

I can't see the error in your output.

Okay, next try. Someone with Windows should check this
before I check in.

As Tim says: the cast deserves a comment, explaining why it
cannot overflow. Even when readsize is size_t, it might
still overflow, since Py_off_t might be wider than size_t.

Apart from that, the patch looks good - but I can't check
whether it silences the warning on Windows.

Attaching patch for f->pos and f->size as Py_off_t.

Clearly, the difference is bound by buffersize (since, if it
is larger, readsize is set to buffersize). buffersize is
initialized to SMALLCHUNK, which is 8192, and never changed,
so yes, the difference fits to an int an all supported
platforms.

OTOH, the condition of the if statement is bogus:

    if ((size_t)offset-bytesread > buffersize)

offset is of type Py_off_t, which is a 64-bit type on most
platforms. Casting it to size_t causes truncation on 32-bit
platforms.

Furthermore, I think self->pos should be of type Py_off_t,
as it will wrap around for files larger >2GB on 32-bit
platforms; the same for self->size.

I think declaring readsize as size_t should fix the problem.
