Re: Add <limits.h> integer width macros
Thanks for explaining. In that case, the patch looks good; thanks. Also,
I created a Gnulib module limits-h with a similar effect; see:
It is perhaps worth mentioning that the new definition of CHAR_WIDTH
collides with Emacs's use of that symbol for its own macro. The new
<limits.h> CHAR_WIDTH will be visible because Emacs defines _GNU_SOURCE.
The typical symptoms are a warning while compiling Emacs and that Emacs
still builds and runs correctly. I installed a change to Emacs so that
this problem won't occur in future Emacs versions (after Emacs 25). This
sort of thing happens every now and then and is not a significant
obstacle to the glibc patch.
