This warning is about to be unmasked in bug 1124033 and it gets turned into an error when building with Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 in automation.
As part of unblocking building with VS2015u1 in automation, I'm mass
disabling compiler warnings that are turned into errors. This is not
the preferred mechanism to fix compilation warnings. So hopefully
this patch never lands because someone insists on fixing the underlying
problem instead. But if it does land, hopefully the workaround is
only temporary.

MozReview Request: Bug 1257303 - Disable C4312 to unblock compilation on VS2015; r?tbsaude

if I'm understanding the warning right its complaing about void* uniqueID = reinterpret_cast<void*>(<int variable>) which should be easily fixed by casting to uintptr_t before casting to void*.

Without this, we get: C4312: 'reinterpret_cast': conversion from
'const LONG' to 'void *' of greater size
