Yes, that was a bad choice of name of my part.

The better way, in the long term, will be to write something like:
    static_assert(sizeof(u32) == sizeof(float));

However, since static_assert hasn't yet been implemented in gcc, that
will not work today.  I think you should change the type name or remove
the assertion.
