I don't see any such warning in the 2.6.13 sparc build at Jan's
crosscompile page [1], and all my patch does is to turn a warning into
an error.

If a #define is using it before the header with the prototype get's
#include'd that's no problem as long as the prototype is available when
the #define is _used_.

I'm not saying that there aren't cases this patch will break (and my
patch shouldn't go into 2.6.14), but your example doesn't seem to cause
problems.
