Well, guess it depends how much we like s32 over int. Both are
identical on all supported architectures, so it is just a style issue,

If m68knommu is the only arch needing asm/typed.h included, I'd so just
include it. If more and more arches need it, just go with int.

It is probably an easier sell.
