Not exactly.  sizeof(unsigned int) is effectively never greater than 4
in Linux (I think it's still 32 bits even on a 64-bit kernel), so it
makes no sense to say >=.  So since you can't say that sizeof(int) ==
4, and you can't say that sizeof(int) > 4, then you certainly can't
say that sizeof(int) >= 4.
