I am also not happy with that. Originally they were in Modules/posixmodule.c. 
However where should we place the declarations? We have not posixmodule.h. 
PyLong_FromPid()/PyLong_AsPid() placed right in Include/longobject.h. Are you 
have any suggestions?

No. uid_t/gid_t can be large than maximal signed long, and long long can be not 
defined. See issue2005 where more complex patch proposed.
