Although it's perfectly valid to implicitly convert an int into a
64-bit size_t, say by multiplying it by another size_t, MSVC -W3 is
complaining with C4334 when that int is formed by a variable left
shift on an integer literal.  However, some trivial operation after
the shift avoids the warning:

  #define twoto(x)	(int)(1u<<(x))   /* note: unsigned->signed cast operation */
  #define twoto(x)	(int)(unsigned int)(1<<(x)) /* similar */
  #define twoto(x)	(0 | 1<<(x))

All of these eliminate the Lua 5.1.4 warnings.  They do seem like hacks though.
