Could you please explain this part:

In what way is it "irrelevant here"?  Your changes don't remove
USE_LISP_UNION_TYPE, do they?  And using the union still limits the
address space, doesn't it?

Also, why did you change DECL_ALIGN to DCL_ALIGN? was something wrong
with the previous name?  The log entry doesn't mention this change,
and the rest of lisp.h that uses DECL_ALIGN was not modified.  Will
this even compile?

Re this:

why isn't efficiency a concern?

Re this:

I still see one instance of LISP_MAKE_RVALUE as a macro in lisp.h:

Also, which parts of gnulib make 'static inline' portable?  If it
isn't in a part that is used by the MS-Windows port, the MSVC build is
still being screwed by these changes.

The following changes are not mentioned in the log entry:

What was the reason for removing this comment:

?  It is again not mentioned in the log entry.

Thanks.
