uintptr_t was introduced to avoid ptrdiff_t misuse in
commit 142956af5250 ("fix abuses of ptrdiff_t") by Al Viro.
unsigned long is preponderant, long is used about 1/4 as
often as unsigned long, uintptr_t is relatively uncommon.
If someone wants to go and convert the 800 or so casts to
long or unsigned long to uintptr_t so that's the style most
frequently used, that'd be different. I'm not going to
submit any patches for that.
