SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/8] arm: put types.h in uapi

I'm taking this patch, but with the following commit log:

Due to the way kbuild works, this header was unintentionally exported
back in 2013 when it was created, despite it not being in a uapi/
directory. This is very non-intuitive behaviour by Kbuild.

However, we've had this include exported to userland for almost four
years, and searching google for "ARM types.h __UINTPTR_TYPE__" gives
no hint that anyone has complained about it. So, let's make it
officially exported in this state.

If anyone has any objections, they better shout sooner rather than
later.
