* 16-bit id's in cu_for_each loops cause infinite loops with large libraries

I'm new to pahole (great tool!)... I downloaded the latest git source 
(b52386d041fac2dc6decf3a9e8e85385784a2de9) and tried to run it against a 
large library from my project. It got caught in an infinite loop in 
cu__find_base_type_by_sname_and_size() in the call to cu__for_each_type(). 
The reason was the uint16_t id was not big enough... it wraps around and 
is always less than cu->types_table.nr_entries. I changed it (and other 
instances of it in dwarves.c) to uint32_t, and that seems to have fixed 
the issue, but I don't know if there are any other side effects.

Anyway, hope this helps!
