Subject: loff_t definition in <fcntl.h> (vs. glibc in <sys/types.h>)

Hi Rich,

what is the reason for loff_t being defined in <fcntl.h> ?
It was defined some time ago, in v0.9.5.

glibc (and thus uclibc; + also Bionic) has it in <sys/types.h>, defined long
time before.  Who is correct? I guess loff_t not being posix, therefore it
shouldn't be in <sys/types.h> ?

I'm asking because it'd be nice to have it for both in single header

Kind regards,
