Support for inttypes.h from the C99 standard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inttypes.h#Fixed-width_integer_types The biggest advantage from the types is their more well-defined behaviour. Avoiding nasty surprises which can be very important in embedded design. The inclusion of inttypes would allow writing shorter and more self-explanatory code. The new types would allow more stability (and portability) since the sizes are not implementation defined. Encourages reusable and stable code for e.g. drivers. Minimally the exact width integer types is all that's needed.
