Re: Any ada maintainers out there this afternoon? (Ada bootstrap broken on newlib targets)

There's a clash between the FOPEN macro used by Ada (defined in adaint.h to hide 32/64-bit file i/o selection) and an identically named macro defined in newlib's sys/_default_fcntl.h.

  Since they're only used in a few places, I think that probably the better
solution would be to stick a prefix in front of Ada's macros rather than
#undef the one from the newlib header, so I'm about to start work on a patch
that adds a "_GNAT_" prefix to each of the definitions in adaint.h, and their
respective uses in adaint.c and cstreams.c.

  If any Ada maintainers would prefer a different prefix name, please drop me
a line or post to PR40857.  Thanks.

Actually you do not want to use __gnat_ now that I look at it, that would cause other clashes, so I guess _GNAT_ is as good as anything.

cheers, DaveK
