Otherwise it'd return a value of unsigned long type regardless of the
type of the arg.  I thought it should have same logic as indirect

But it seems not matter since record_entry() would copy it only for
the arg->size.  Then type check in __get_arg() might be unnecessary

I've checked it.  And it seems to have another problem for indirect
(but not redirect) arrays and strings.  Like 'x32[1] foo[2]'?
