A more important issue here is that not all platforms we target are even
8-bit addressable (e.g. the TI C5x family). That is why I've preferred
using "unsigned char" (or in some places signed char) when the idea is
just to use the smallest size possible on the platform. As for 64 bits
types, it's been purposefully defined as "long long" because on some
platforms (e.g. C55x again) long long is just 40 bits, which is just
enough for what we need.

Simon, is your patch designed to fix a particular issue with types on a
certain platform or is it more of a "general cleanup" type?
