Anyone know why we are using:
typedef __signed char __int8_t;
Why not just:
typdef signed char __int8_t;
It seems to be very GCC specific, but even those occurences are outdated
when you glimpse the entire source tree of DragonFly.
If no objections I will remove this within 2 days unless okayed to
before. Currently in FreeBSD I see there is a PR assigned to the
standards guys about it (bin/35307).
My idea, to change it to signed and perhaps just nuke it from cdefs. It
is non-portable anyway and the source tree does _not_ depend on it.
