Closed as program error.
The problem is exposed when an expression is used to specified an unnamed bitfield width rather than integer literal. In addition to that, the type of expression needs to be different from the bitfield type. The following message might be incorrectly issued even though the type of bitfield is not long: 1540-1639 (I) The behavior of long type bit fields has changed from previous releases of this compiler. In 64-bit mode, long type bit fields now default to long, not int.
Replace expression with integer literal
incorrect type of unnamed bitfield in 64-bit
