We currently have:
#define __need_size_t /* tell gcc stddef.h we only want size_t */
#if defined (__cplusplus)
#include <cstddef> /* for size_t */
#include <stddef.h> /* for size_t */
We should at least move the __need_size_t stuff so it only applies to
stddef.h (not cstddef), or preferably remove it completely, it isn't worth
the trouble. I am quite sure we already discussed that, but didn't get
around to it yet.
