I think there's still a problem here, though it is somewhat endemic to
the argument passing routines:
TYPE_CODE_ENUM, /* Enumeration type */
TYPE_CODE_REF, /* C++ Reference types */
TYPE_CODE_CHAR, /* *real* character type */
And possibly TYPE_CODE_MEMBERPTR too... that's a signed offset,
probably 32-bit in the n32 case. Getting this right is a real
