Some ei questions

1. ei.h says about ERL_SMALL_INTEGER_EXT etc. "Defines used for
ei_get_type_internal() output; we don't want to export these". Are
they likely to go away in next release or two? Should some other
#defines be used for output of `ei_get_type()` (not
`ei_get_type_internal()`)?

2. ERL_SMALL_INTEGER_EXT should be decoded with ei_decode_long() and
ERL_INTEGER_EXT with ei_decode_longlong()? Or something different?

Yours, Alexey Romanov
