No change in size.  First, check usage within function:
     int64_t end_sector = DIV_ROUND_UP(offset + bytes, BDRV_SECTOR_SIZE);
Changes computation from uint64_t to int64_t.  This causes a borderline 
bug on images between INT64_MAX-511 and INT64_MAX (nbdkit can produce 
such images over NBD, although they are atypical on disk), where 
DIV_ROUND_UP() would give the right answer as uint64_t but a negative 
answer with int64_t.  As those images are not sector-aligned, maybe we 
don't need to care?
all other uses appear to be within asserts related to offset+bytes being 
positive, so that's what we should check for.

bdrv_aligned_pwritev() - changed in this patch to 'int64_t', analyzed 
below [1]
bdrv_co_pdiscard() - already passes 'int64_t', also checks for 
offset+bytes overflow - safe
bdrv_co_copy_range_internal() - 'uint64_t', but already analyzed for 
3/17 how it was capped < 2M - safe
bdrv_co_truncate() - already passes 'int64_t', passes new_bytes computed 
by subtracting from a positive 'int64_t offset' - safe

[1] except I hit the end of my work day, so my analysis will have to 
continue tomorrow...
