OK, thanks. After finish this consult, I shall report bugs, and shall
try to fix it (I got it from Qemu which in my current focus border).
Hope I can finish within this month.

And one another consult: if the constant variable is defined in header
file, and never be used, need our g++ still report warning about
[-Wunused-variable] too (for me, I guess, not)?
