These aren't extensions though, they're part of std::unordered_map

Just because something like _Vector_base is an internal type rather
than something defined in the standard doesn't mean we can just change
its ABI, because that would change the ABI of std::vector. It the same

Changing _Hashtable affects all users of std::unordered_map etc.
