I remember that long long ago Denis said something about removing
support for -mint8 completely - perhaps it's still there only due to
lack of time to remove it ;-)

If the main reason for using -mint8 is better code from "switch"
statements (no conversion to a 16-bit int before comparing), I think
it is better to rewrite such code as a series of if/else statements.
