Rename min/max -> uimin/uimax for better honesty.

These functions are defined on unsigned int.  The generic name
min/max should not silently truncate to 32 bits on 64-bit systems.
This is purely a name change -- no functional change intended.

HOWEVER!  Some subsystems have

	#define min(a, b)	((a) < (b) ? (a) : (b))
	#define max(a, b)	((a) > (b) ? (a) : (b))

even though our standard name for that is MIN/MAX.  Although these
may invite multiple evaluation bugs, these do _not_ cause integer
truncation.

To avoid `fixing' these cases, I first changed the name in libkern,
and then compile-tested every file where min/max occurred in order to
confirm that it failed -- and thus confirm that nothing shadowed
min/max -- before changing it.

I have left a handful of bootloaders that are too annoying to
compile-test, and some dead code:

cobalt ews4800mips hp300 hppa ia64 luna68k vax
acorn32/if_ie.c (not included in any kernels)
macppc/if_gm.c (superseded by gem(4))

It should be easy to fix the fallout once identified -- this way of
doing things fails safe, and the goal here, after all, is to _avoid_
silent integer truncations, not introduce them.

Maybe one day we can reintroduce min/max as type-generic things that
never silently truncate.  But we should avoid doing that for a while,
so that existing code has a chance to be detected by the compiler for
conversion to uimin/uimax without changing the semantics until we can
properly audit it all.  (Who knows, maybe in some cases integer
truncation is actually intended!)

This form allows you to request diff's between any two revisions of a file. You may select a symbolic revision name using the selection box or you may type in a numeric name using the type-in text box.
