and fix [u]intmax_t and wchar_t limits in stdint.h etc. (U,L,LL suffix)
and fix printf fmt in inttypes.h (otherwise gcc will warn)

other pending things from my todo:
arpa/tftp.h (inetutils )
fgetspent, putpwent (pam_unix )
inb, outb,.. (xorg, grub, lmsensors,..?)
mkostemp (better rand and stack address hiding)
struct ntptimeval (glibc vs musl abi )
random_r (used by mesa?)
