in my last message I asked you *not* to send any HTML messages!
Additionally you did not reply to the list. Please use a decent mail client which has the option to reply to the list. (As a workaround you might use the reply to all feature.

Thanks to Stefan Reinauer these errors should be fixed with the following commit.
        commit c7b6d7db092cfd925f1fb6333e166a54663310e7

            libpayload: Fix type issues
            There were a number of type issues in libpayload that
        sneaked in
            with 903f8e0.
            - size_t and ssize_t were conflicting with gcc builtins
            - some stdint types were used in libpayload but not defined
              in our stdint.h
            Reviewed-on: http://review.coreboot.org/2903 Please do `git remote update` and `git rebase origin/master` to get the latest revision and everything should be fine.
