No task being too simple, here's a patch to do that.  It also
doesn't define __*int_least*_t types for those optional types
unless they're provided, fixing a further buglet when including
stdint.h which would make a difference only if it's actually
possible to use a non-newlib-stdint.h from within newlib.  A gcc
build of cris-elf succeeds and has passed the earlier gcc
test-suite point of failure.  Assuming no regressions, is this
ok to check in?

Or would you prefer the other way, putting the corresponding
part of libc/include/stdint.h here and making
libc/include/stdint.h include <machine/_default_types.h>?

	* libc/include/machine/_default_types.h: Prefer use of
	gcc-specific type-macros when defining namespace-safe types.
	Only define __-equivalent int-types mapping to existing
	types.  Use stdint.h only as a fallback.
