Looks nicer than the existing code.

But when used from C++, <stdint.h> must *not* define INT64_C, UINT64_C
etc. if __STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS is not defined. So if a user wants only
the __STDC_LIMIT_MACROS and not the __STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS, our stdint_.h
should still work. We could escape to using __INT64_C and __UINT64_C,
like glibc does, but this bears the risk of conflicts with the system
