K&R C leaves arithmetic overflow undefined (except for unsigned
types), in the sense that you get whatever the underlying hardware
gives you.  If it traps, you get trapped.  If it wraps, you get wrapped.

Is that really what the K&R book says, or just what compilers typically
did? My memory is that the K&R book leaves it undefined period, but it's
a long time since I read it!
