    libpayload: handle size_t compilation errors
    __SIZE_TYPE__ is used by gcc in its stddef.h header to define
    the type of size_t through a typedef. In order to not conflict with
    the typedef for size_t honor __SIZE_TYPE__ when it is defined.
    libpayload is being compiled with the compiler's header files so
    one needs to handle its own types and defines.
