[LinuxBIOS] difference between uint16_t and u16

i have noticed several patches signed off on the list that change data
types from uint16_t to u16 and the like (8 .. 32 bit signed and
unsigned) and was wondering why ? i thought uint16_t was c99
standard ? i asked the same thing on sdl's mailing list and was told
that not all compilers support it. with sdl that seems right since its
a platform independent lib. with linuxbios it seems that is not the
case, i assume most or all would be using gcc.
only reason i ask is that a standard header was added years ago and i
still see custom data types. just trying to understand that better.
