Lemme just make absolutely paranoid-ly certain of this...

The tm_file order in config.gcc is

    pa/pa.h linux.h pa/pa-linux.h

So, pa.h defines it,
    linux.h doesn't define it (but would undef/redefine it after my patch),
    pa-linux.h undefines it,

and so pa-linux.h would then need to re-define it to the union of the pa.h
version and my one-line linux.h version?  And have to be maintained by hand?

This sounds like spaghetti code with teeth.  Please tell me I've got this
massively confused somehow.

(can't think of an easy way for linux.h to simply "prepend" -D_GNU_SOURCE
to a previously-defined possibly empty CPLUSPLUS_CPP_DEFINE, rather than
undef'ing it and fully redefining it.)
