There is a row in "Table 122 - Atomics for standard typedef types" in 99 [atomics.types.integral] with atomic_ssize_t and ssize_t. Unless, I'm missing something ssize_t is not defined by the standard.

[ Summit: ]

Move to review. Proposed resolution: Remove the typedef. Note: ssize_t is a POSIX type.

[ Batavia (2009-05): ]

We agree with the proposed resolution. Move to Tentatively Ready.

Proposed resolution:

Remove the row containing ssize_t from Table 119 "Atomics for standard typedef types" in 99 [atomics.types.address].
