Thank you for review, comments are inline, rewrite in progress :)

Required for size_t.

Is there some library I can use for that? It's indeed fairly trivial accessors but I
didn't managed to find those in osmocom code.

Will fix, thanks.

Doh! Could you remind me - what was the magic tool which takes care of indentation
for kernel devs? Osmocom uses linux kernel code style, is it?

I thought it might but it turned out to be used only in single file. Should I hide it
