Lately, I've been fixing this with:
if (s < 0 || u > (unsigned) s)
but only after careful examination of what s really
represents. If s just contained a sloppy assignment from
what was previously an unsigned value, then no need for the
extra mathematical rigor.
Also, a lot these warnings arise from people using int when
they should have used size_t.
