We don't actually utilize _GNU_SOURCE or __USE_GNU in newlib so far,
except in libc/sys/linux.  We just don't have the detailed features.h in
place as glibc has.  What we really have is _POSIX_SOURCE and
__STRICT_ANSI__, and a teensy little bit of __XSI_VISIBLE, __POSIX_VISIBLE
and __BSD_VISIBLE.  The last three are only rarely used, and we
shouldn't start using them or others more often, unless we have the
matching feature test macros defined in features.h along the lines (but
not necessarily identical to) glibc.  IMHO.
