I mean, we can have the type, but make it 32-bit on all systems.
Anyway, the warnings have been fixed.  In some cases, grub_size_t was
used for offsets, which is wrong because we want to support large files
on 32-bit systems.

I think I'll try to make grub_size_t 32-bit everywhere and see if it's
going to make any difference or help discover some issues.
