So that's where unreadable include lists come from.
Depth-first lexicographically-sorted is a lot less hassle,
especially when it comes to merging patches that each
add one different include.

Not really. uint32_t is the C99 type for a 32-bit quantity, and I see
absolutely zero reason not to use standardized things. The only
exception are header files visible to user space where __u32 should
be used for (obscure) reasons of avoiding naming clashes.

(Obscure because uint32_t is always supposed to be 32 bits.)
