[ECOS] Constants generated by CDL

Actually the problem is if the number is a decimal number:
#define TTT 3229683712
#define putU(x,y) x##y
#define tounsigned(x) putU(x,U)

unsigned int i = TTT;
unsigned int j = tounsigned(TTT);

dbrennan@brennan ~
$ i386-elf-gcc x.c
x.c:5: warning: decimal constant is so large that it is unsigned
crt0.o: No such file: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

dbrennan@brennan ~
$ gcc x.c
x.c:5: warning: this decimal constant is unsigned only in ISO C90
undefined reference to `_WinMain@16'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

So yes, it would fix my problem. I did not try adding the extra layer in 
my experimentations. But I would still rather have more control over the 
format of the number spit out by CDL. CDL could also put the number out 
in hex and I wouldn't need to do anything. But it is a calculated number 
(ORing together bit field options.)
