Re: cvs commit: src/sys/sys bus_private.h

   This is fine, though in general it should be noted that it is better
   for the kernel header files to use machine types from machine/stdint.h
   so as not to create unnessary namespace pollution by requiring that
   <sys/types> be included.  Header files would be able
   to safely conditionally #include <machine/stdint.h> and friends without
   polluting the namespace and thus become more self-contained.
   (generally speaking, only sys header files and source should
   directly include machine/ header files like that).

   A good example of this would be a program that uses old-style varargs.h,
   and we have several.  We would not want any of our header files which
   use varargs internally to include <stdarg.h> because it would conflict
   with programs using the old-style varargs.h, which is why they all use
