The vast majority of special cases I’ve seen and written are due to the size of Int, not a pointer per se.  To clear up the confusion, how about we rename bitwidth to intwidth or intsize?

If that is universally the case then I think bitwidth is fine. If not then pointerwidth may be more correct. Those bridging to C would have to consider information from the C world to deal with the variations of type size based on platform and 32/64.
