I don't really consider this to have much relevance in the context of
csl-sol210-3_4-branch, which is what is used for the compiler distributed
with Solaris 10. Sun generally prefer to fix the system headers rather
than use fixincludes, and they have been advised of the nature of the
problems in the existing header and of how to fix them for GCC (adding
library functions in some cases, similar to those used in glibc for some
of the macros, is possible for Sun; they aren't restricted to solving the
problem in the header only even if such a solution is complicated and
inefficient). The fixincludes patch in question wouldn't be merged to
csl-sol210-3_4-branch until at least the 3.4.5 release in any case, and
the bypasses on __GNUC__ should suffice to cover whatever fixes Sun might
use for the header problem.
