Perhaps, but it doesn't hurt either.  I think it is a good thing to
have a type such that it is clear what kind of variable is used.

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.

Why? I would let it be optimal type for current memory bus width.
