Yes, this is a no-op change for the platforms I know of. It's more future-proof, that's all. Neither C99 nor C11 nor even POSIX guarantee that int64_t is supported (this is for portability to mainframes with 72-bit longs, and I suppose to hypothetical future machines). Of course it's fine to use int64_t in platform-specific code where the platform guarantees that int64_t exists.
