Ok, checked in. It never got checked in and there was no follow-up from
Ralf who submitted it. The probable reason: nobody cared since no
functions reference it; however, yes, it is part of SUSV3, only contains
macro definitions, and after two years, one person (you) actually wants
it, so I have checked it in.
