Yes, these two files are from WinUAE ... but at least in readcpu.c it's
getting kind of ugly, since this is not using "char" but "TCHAR", which
is a special type on Windows AFAIK, so simply casting to "unsigned
char" is not appropriate there. I think it's likely best if we simply
turn of the char-subscripts warnings for the WinUAE CPU core code, but
keep it for the rest of Hatari. The CPU core code only deals with a
well-known set of plain ASCII files, so there should never be a
character with the value >= 128 in there, thus it should be ok to
ignore the warnings here.


PS: I'm currently experimenting with Cygwin builds on,
and I can reproduce the compiler warnings there ... I'll add a
regression test job to our .cirrus-ci.yml once I've got it in a proper
