Issue with http_chunks.c

From: Glen A Johnson Jr. <>

curl version 7.37.1

This issue was discovered when running with a 64bit compilation.

The assignment of a ssize_t pointer from the parameter list to a size_t
pointer in the function causes stack corruption when data is assigned to
the variables location during 64bit execution.

The diff file attached shows one method to correct the issue. A simpler
method would be to eliminate the variable "wrote" and use "*wrotep +=
(ssize_t)piece;" at ~line 237.
