[Gluster-devel] C99 requirement in Gluster ?

so I was reading coverty scan reports (as Nigel tricked me into looking
them), and one of the first is this:

at first, i was wondering why/what is the issue.

But, after searching, int8_t is a C99 type, which is signed when
compiled on C99 compiler, and likely unsigned when compiled using a non
C99 compiler (as I see in ./contrib/argp-standalone/acinclude.m4 , it
will be defined to "char" on non c99 platform, which also make no
garantee on being signed or unsigned, according to
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4337217/difference-between-signed-unsigned-char ).

So, to fix that, should we force to use c99, or update argp-standalone ?

(and if we do requires c99 already, how come coverty do not use it ?)
