Tweak spare_seek and a few other size_t vars

Thanks, Pedro!  I agree that the sparse_seek variable should be an off_t (which
is an OFF_T in rsync, to support some systems where off_t isn't as bit as it
should be).

In looking at the size_t args write_file() and write_sparse() and how they
interact with int vars, it looks to me like some of the size_t values should
also be ints.

This patch changes both the sparse_seek definition and makes some size_t vars
