There was a change today where swab(3) needed the restrict C99 keyword,
it seems that the previously size_t len was also changed to ssize_t to
conform to POSIX (as odd as that new interface seems); I suspect that
the code needs a cast or a slight modification since, like using an
extra size_t variable for use after the function prologue...
