commit 918a5c64f503945a878831cd46a835926d97179b
Author: Ronald G. Minnich <rminnich at gmail.com>

    Add standard defines
    Paul points out that some people like 1024*1024, others like
    1048576, but in any case these are all open to typos.
    Define KiB, MiB, GiB, and TiB as in the standard so people can use them.
