If it is just a matter of unifdef not doing the right thing, then that's
a bug in unifdef - looking at the code, it _should_ handle the case as
it's currently in the tree.

I'll spend a bit looking at this issue before applying this patch - if
the fix turns out to be trivial then we all win by not requiring people
to write stuff in unexpected (to the tools, but standard C) ways.
