The last two are enforced by compiler warnings now. The second is hard
because of bitfields.

I object to the first. If you need a new type name, use a typedef. It's
time honored and everyone, including C programmers, will know what you're
doing. I don't understand why people push the new thing just for the sake
of new-ness.
