I wonder what the capture is for?
(?<!BUILD_)BUG(?:_ON) if you ask me :)
But you could also use...
which rules out a BUILD_BUG_ON, because _ does not constitute a word
boundary, since _ is in \w.

And since when is uint32_t wrong? What makes u32 or __u32 better?
We have sprintf, (k)asprintf, abs(), etc. etc. etc. tons of functions
named similar to their ISO C counterparts, but when it comes to types,
we make an exception?
