tip: Cast via intptr_t not long when casting between pointer and int

Authored by jrtc27 on Tue, Jun 8, 2:57 PM.



Whilst all FreeBSD architectures have the same representation for
intptr_t and long (even if the former is int on ILP32 architectures),
this is more general and correct, and on CHERI they are not the same so
warnings are generated by default for integer-to-pointer casts that
aren't via (u)intptr_t.

The whitespace here is actually dodgy (number has a tab, but boolean and character have spaces after them). I didn't notice when writing this patch, only the next one, but can update that when committing this if approved.

These look good to me
