The idiom

    for (LInsHashKind kind = LInsFirst; kind <= LInsLast; kind = nextKind(kind)) 

will trigger

    comparison is always true due to limited range of data type

warnings/errors dependings on compiler configuration.

"compilers that will insist..." is heresay and spreads fear, uncertianty, and doubt... the comment should say what compiler it is, so later we can re-check whether the hack is still needed.

I wrote "will trigger... warnings/errors depending on compiler configuration", "compilers will insist"... :-)

For the record, it was a variant of gcc 4.4 building for Android; I'm guessing (without proof) that any gcc 4.4 variant can be persuaded to complain in similar fashion if you configure its warning level in a similarly anal-retentive manner.
