This has happened before and will happen again. How about adding 
"stdint.h" locally, with something like this inside:

#ifndef _STDINT_H
#ifdef __STDC_VERSION__
#include <stdint.h>
#define _STDINT_H       1
typedef unsigned char uint8_t;
typedef unsigned short uint16_t;
typedef unsigned int uint32_t;
typedef unsigned long long uint64_t;

Then all future formats using <stdint.h> (and HDAA_fmt.c which has some 
of the above inline) can be just changed to use "stdint.h". The above 
suffices for now and if some future patch want something not included 
here we can add that at the time.

Not sure if it's kosher but it will save us work in the future.
