    RTEMS: Add kvaddr_t and ksize_t
    These types were introduced by FreeBSD commit:
    "Make struct xinpcb and friends word-size independent.
    Replace size_t members with ksize_t (uint64_t) and pointer members
    (never used as pointers in userspace, but instead as unique
    idenitifiers) with kvaddr_t (uint64_t). This makes the structs
    identical between 32-bit and 64-bit ABIs.
    On 64-bit bit systems, the ABI is maintained. On 32-bit systems,
    this is an ABI breaking change. The ABI of most of these structs
    was previously broken in r315662.  This also imposes a small API
    change on userspace consumers who must handle kernel pointers
    becoming virtual addresses.

    Differential Revision:"
    In RTEMS, there is no user/kernel space separation.  So, use the types
    size_t and uintptr_t.
