- Subject: Add ATTRIBUTE_PACKED to ansidecl.h
I am applying the patch below to add a definition of
ATTRIBUTE_PACKED to ansidecl.h along the lines of the other
attributes defined in this file. This definition is now needed by
the binutils sources.
Does anyone know when the packed attribute was actually introduced
into gcc ? I have not put a version number check into the patch
because as far as I could tell it came in when support for
__attribute__ was added.
