_all_ the instances of these types. As a result of this patch, s626.c
contains a mixture of the different integer type styles. I guess we can
fix that up later though.
Seems trivial enough to do.
There was a possible issue with converting int_t types that
were used as uapi function arguments.
checkpatch currently warns only about variable declarations and
not function declarations. It doesn't convert casts either.
