I'm iffy about this.

There are some hard warnings to get rid of.

For example when building certain grub-* tools there is no way
to get around the current redefinitions we get of LONG_MAX and
friends.  (one comes in via grub headers, then the stdio.h include
gets us the system definition, we can't use ifdef guards because
the grub headers come in and define things first)
