If I understand this correctly, It makes sense to leave this as is.
(Except that I just added a comment to the upstream source stating
that the __private_extern__ hack is required only for pre-3.4 gcc.)
If I remove it from the upstream source, it breaks when built by itself
with an older gcc. If we remove it just from the gcc tree, we get a
divergence that's not strictly necessary. The package already contains lots
of code that's not strictly useful in the gcc tree and is never built in
