Table 143 lists the typedefs for various atomic types corresponding to the various standard integer typedefs, such as atomic_int_least8_t for int_least8_t, and atomic_uint_fast64_t for uint_fast64_t. However, there are no atomic typedefs corresponding to the fixed-size standard typedefs int8_t, int16_t, and so forth.

Accepting n3164 would solve this issue.

WG14 briefly discussed LWG 1456. It turns out that they had previously made a conscious decision not to make a similar change. If C++ would deviate, this would introduce a C divergence.We should reopen the issue and, in my opinion, probably resolve it as NAD instead. This is in a part of the standard that is there mostly for C compatibility, so introducing divergence here seems to make no sense.
WG14 does not require these typedefs, and we see no reason to be gratuitously different.
Add the following entries to table 143:
Table 146 — atomic <inttypes.h> typedefs Atomic typedef <inttypes.h> type ... ... atomic_intmax_t intmax_t atomic_uintmax_t uintmax_t
