That's OK, as stdint.h is also for freestanding programs, where there's
no wchar_t ABI to break.
That's OK too, as it means glibc's WCHAR_MAX supports compilers that
either #define __WCHAR_MAX__ or have a 32-bit wchar_t. glibc's
WCHAR_WIDTH can do the same. Surely it would be unsporting for
WCHAR_WIDTH to disagree with WCHAR_MAX.
the fallback definitions in bits/wchar.h
for compilers without such predefines make no atttempt to handle
