Now that bug 824247 has made FAIL_ON_WARNINGS affect Windows builds, this blocks bug 825941.
It looks like our file-seeking & file-hashing functions here only take 32-bit unsigned ints, and we're passing them a 64-bit int because that's what our "get file size" function returns.

I think we should just check whether the file size is out of bounds for a uint32_t -- if it is, we should explicitly fail; if it's not, we can static_cast it to a uint32_t for warning-free usage.

Attached patch fix v1Splinter Review
This patch
 (a) adds an early check (and failure case) for file-size being larger than UINT32_MAX

 (b) removes a redundant file-size lookup from CheckChecksum(), and just makes that function take the file-size as a uint32_t argument instead

 (c) Adds some "is subtraction about to wrap below 0?" checks (and NS_WARNINGs / failure cases) since now the file size is unsigned & going below 0 would wrap around to a large number)

NS_NewBufferedInputStream and UpdateFromStream both take uint32_t:

fix v1

Review of attachment 697203 [details] [diff] [review]:

We should probably return the more specific NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED in some places, but none of the current code is doing that so let's do that cleanup another time.
