Description

tools: mkimage: fix __u64 typedef conflict with new glibc

Including "sys/stat.h" from newer glibc will cause __u64 from linux uapi
header to be included, causing compilation failure for u-boot tools
USE_HOSTCC

Remove typedef for u64 in include/compiler.h to fix the issue. It should be
safe because as of u-boot-2018.03, no ref to
u64 is found under u-boot tools/
directory

Error message snippet follows

	  HOSTCC  tools/mkenvimage.o
