My apologies to David.  I don't read 100% of this list.
I catch stuff directed to me or containing "fixinc" in the subject.

It is hard to tell what is most important with a patch like this.
It is not readily apparent to me how these "__generic" macros work.
I find it interesting that you are emitting three external function
declarations in "irix___generic1", but not in "irix___generic2".
So, a couple of questions:

1.  Are we talking about specifically two __generic macros, or is
    this really a generally "__generic" transform that fixes up
    more than just the two examples?

2.  If there are just these two examples, would it make sense to just
    "select" all the text involved and just replace it?  Whatever.
    I'll leave it to your judgement.

fixinclude fixes ought to go in all active "lines" (assuming they have
shown to fix the problem *AND* not caused regressions with other fixes.
viz., you've done "make check" in the fixinc build directory.  Though
with searching for the oddball "__generic" thing, I would hope for no

Thanks!  Regards, Bruce
