Hi Paul,

> Use uint_fast8_t not uint8_t, as C99 does not require uint8_t.

Such precautions are not needed, because
  - gnulib for sure will not be ported to architectures where no
    8-bit integer type exists.
  - Whether C99 requires it or not, does not matter here: The 'glob'
    module depends on 'stdint', and the 'stdint' module provides
    uint8_t unconditionally (for several years already).
