On Linux sizeof(int) is always 4.

I'm just so confused what you are talking about. Are you thinking about
sizeof(long)? Are you thinking about CPUs from the 1970s? Linux wasn't
invented until the 90s so the old CPUs were already in museums at that
point.

This is an unusual style opinion that I have not heard before.
Hopefully, you just got ints and longs confused so we can move on
without discussing it too much. We're copying an int so sizeof(int) is
obviously correct. It's hard to know how to respond.

What? Why would you think that?
