    Subject[PATCH] scripts/unifdef.c: rename getline symbol to something else
    From: Kyle McMartin <>

    Rawhide builds are currently failing to build unifdef.c, as the next
    version of glibc changes the default _POSIX_C_SOURCE level, which
    exposes getline() from <stdio.h>

    scripts/unifdef.c:209: error: conflicting types for 'getline'
    /usr/include/stdio.h:653: note: previous declaration of 'getline' was
    make[2]: *** [scripts/unifdef] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [__headers] Error 2
    make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2

    Rename the symbol in unifdef.c to parseline to avoid this conflicting

    Otherwise Jakub says we could add a -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112L as a
    workaround to unifdef CFLAGS, but this seems like it would be less
    desirable in the long term.
