Therefore, question is why so many style breakages in the core kernel
A lot of that core kernel code predates the C99 types.
Ok, why _still_ the 40% in sys/arch has the obsoleted style? I can
understand 3rd party code which can't be so big.

Because a lot of that code also existed before the types existed?

Realize in some cases there's code there that's over 15 years old (or in the general kernel case much much older).
