My kneejerk reaction is that this is way overkill for inttostr.
Also, I've had problems with __builtin_object_size not behaving
as documented for GCC: it is sometimes not allowed in a constant
expression, even though it always returns a constant.  I suspect
Jim's original proposal is a better way to go.  I'll look into
one or two possible improvements that don't involve so many
changes to the code.
