GCC 2.4.5 has the __extension__ keyword for these situations. It
could be inserted before the quad_t typedefs in <sys/types.h>, and
then -pedantic shouldn't choke on them anymore.
If __extension__ is used, then the fact that the quad_t types are long
longs can be hidden in the <sys/types.h> header, and as far as XFree86
is concerned the header would be pure ANSI. No changes to GCC or
XFree86 would be required.
