As https://travis-ci.org/git/git/jobs/262463159 shows, unfortunately
it turns out that things are not so simple X-<.  On Linux32, size_t
is uint, which is the same size as ulong, but "%lu" is not appropriate
for showing a size_t value.

So you are correct to say in the comment under three-dashes that
there is much more to change in the codebase.
