Subject[PATCH] __cat and __unique_id in stringify.h
__cat() to paste tokens could be used in a few places, and
__unique_id() is useful for module.h.

Name: Centralize token pasting and generation of unique IDs
Author: Rusty Russell
Status: Tested on 2.5.70-bk13

D: Add __cat(a,b) to implement token pasting to stringify.h. To
D: generate unique names, __unique_id(stem) is implemented (it'd be
D: nice to have a gcc extension to give a unique identifier). Change
D: module.h to use them.
