75. We have 75 of them:

// Options: --all-includes

identifier NAME, SIZE, ARRAY;
typedef s8, s16, s32, s64;
typedef __s8, __s16, __s32, __s64;
typedef u8, u16, u32, u64;
typedef __u8, __u16, __u32, __u64;
type SIZE_TYPE = {char, short, int, long, long long, ssize_t,
 s8, s16, s32, s64, __s8, __s16, __s32, __s64,
 unsigned char, unsigned short, unsigned int, unsigned long, unsigned long long, size_t,
 u8, u16, u32, u64, __u8, __u16, __u32, __u64};
type BYTE_TYPE = {char, unsigned char, u8, __u8};

*struct NAME {
        BYTE_TYPE ARRAY[];
