I MUCH prefer a change to the kernel if one or the other
needs to change. The issue is, of course, IRIX
compatability and what that means. This comes up because I
want to use the definitions in combination and the common
bit makes a mess of things. Still, it would be NICE if it
matched the rest of the platforms.
