go tip ea5e3bd but also earlier

The calculation uintptr(newcap) * et.size in growslice
for the below example wraps around to 32 (4*1073741832) on 386:

type T [1<<27 + 1]int64

var d T
var s []T

func main() {
	s = append(s, d, d, d, d)
	print(len(s), "\n")
unexpected fault address 0x5044e000
fatal error: fault
[signal SIGBUS: bus error code=0x2 addr=0x5044e000 pc=0x4402f]
