I think consensus was that we don't want to spend time on making it
-mint8 clean, but we don't want to artificially prevent those parts to
be -mint8 clean where this can be had without additional costs, in
particular without any negative side effects on the !-mint8 case.

I didn't look at the patch so far, but if it fits into this, I don't
see a reason to not accept it.  The only nit is that it might be worth
documenting when some header file is believed to be -mint8 compatible
(because we made a global statement that »avr-libc is basically not
compatible with -mint8«).  We did some minor reorg on <inttypes.h>
before to make it -mint8 compatible.  This is documented as well.
