        This patch doesn't fix any bugs; it's just a minor coding cleanup.

        hash_string uses 'unsigned long' and discards information,
        where plain 'unsigned' would work, would be simpler, and would
        discard less info.

        Perhaps the code is written the way it is to avoid an old compiler
        bug?  In that case, perhaps it should be commented that way.

        * hashlib.c (ALL_ONES, BITS): Remove.
        (hash_string): Don't discard information above the bottom 31 bits.
