Such usage violates the C standard: even if one compiler
is not picky about it, your're likely to run into another that
does.  So a better solution is needed.

Earlier you asked for a special hook to have gnulib <stdint.h>
not define int_fast8_t etc.  I'd rather have an approach
where the code simply does "#include <stdint.h>" and assumes
that int_fast8_t works.  I don't understand the overall situation,
though, so I don't know what exactly to suggest.
