We can use uint32_t in kernel too. The only reason for using __u32 in
the kernel is for when structure definitions are shared with userspace
and we want to to avoid the requirement for C99 types in legacy
applications which use POSIX APIs. We don't need to worry about that
here so we should use uint32_t throughout.
