user-uid and 32bit uids

user-uid is returning Lisp integer (which is 28 bit), but returned value
from getuid is uid_t which can be larger e.g. on systems with newer Linux
kernels. Users who have large UIDs can have problems (as in other
applications ;-). E.g. in VC which checks for uid == 0 etc.

Emacs byte compiler is a VW Bug.  This code makes it be a VW Bug with fuel
injection and a turbocharger...
