I think there's no pressing need to go to c99 types that would warrant
a bulk conversion.  Also, iirc, some of that is 3rd party code, and we
need to be careful not to introduce unnecessary diffs with the

Current policy w.r.t. u_ types is to "fix them as you go", i.e. if you
want to make changes to a file with u_ types, you might as well
convert it to use c99 u types (in a separate commit).  That way the
churn is minimized, and that the change is actually verified.
