Building this test case with go build foo.go

package p

typedef struct {
	unsigned long x : 40;
} s;
import "C"

var v C.s


# command-line-arguments
/tmp/go-build300185653/b001/_cgo_gotypes.go:23:4: undefined: uint40

Oddly, something seems to be special about the number 40.

Ah, it fails when the bit size is a multiple of 8 other than 8, 16, 32, 64.
