RTEMS has no backward compatability issues on the values of the
constants.  Make them what they have to be and RTEMS will
deal with the change.  

I repeat -- RTEMS tries to be standard -- we do not want to
have special configurations or deviate.  If the constants
are all there, we don't care what the values are.  We just
want them defined coherently and efficiently. :)

So if changing the numbers makes them compatable with Cygwin
or Solaris or whatever, change them.  If they are defined,
we would prefer to use them from libc/include.
