Hi, all,

I just tripped over a textual glitch in paripriv.h.  A couple of lines
use the argument "GEN B0".
I changed "B0" to "_B0", and it worked without problem.  Should I file
a bug?

Can't you use a separate modules for the part that use termios.h,
or alternatively #undef B0 somewhere?

Good suggestions. We actually elected to remove the header file after deciding that "priv" meant "private". If we run into similar problems, "#undef" seems reasonable.

So while I am not sold on keeping B0, you cannot rely on us not using
inadvertently any of the above names in the future (especially in a
private header file), so you should be better off solving it on your side.

Agreed. I understand our structure a bit better now, and it is definitely going to be our problem in the future.
