We are probably going to change at least some files to convert
u_intN_t to uintN_t. However, I think we're going to be fairly careful
about that (and slow about it) because the change is very pervasive
and we don't want to create too much incompatibility.

My guess is that /usr/src/include and /usr/src/sys/sys will go first,
along with our man pages. The rest may happen over a very long period
of time.

If you have several specific branches that you want to work on right
now and which will only be around for a few weeks, I can put things
off to accommodate your schedule.
