--- Comment #2 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
First of all, why Watcom?  As far as I know, there are no 32-bit platforms
supported by Watcom for which gcc doesn't generate better code (although I
don't know of a version of gcc for OS/2 which works as a cross-compiler.)

I really don't want to uglify the code like this to support a known-broken
compiler which hasn't had a release in over six years (the strange license and
the use of p4 really has made it close to impossible for it to get a developer

However, something like this patch might be okay... although I can't guarantee
it won't break in the future.  The patch is against the master branch.

In the future I expect that we will have less switch statements with 64-bit
parameters as we migrate to the new backend interface.
