strictly speaking, we got three API changes in stable CVS.
1) g_type_fundamental_next() returns shifted fundamental IDs now
2) GScanner gained v_int64 and store_int64 fields
3) the addition of g_ascii_strtoull()

(1) is required to get custom fundamental types back to work.
(2) is required to get 64bit scanning working beyond
    sizeof(long)==sizeof(gint64) type systems
(3) is not a necessary addition

with (1) and (2) already causing an interface age drop to 0, i didn't
see much point in leaving (3) as a 2.2 addition.
