cpukit/libcsupport/include/rtems/libio.h contains this:


  • A 64-bit file offset for internal use by RTEMS. Based on the Newlib
  • type. */

typedef _off64_t rtems_off64_t;

The rationale behind this escapes me.

I am proposing to abandon this type entirely and to use off_t instead.

rtems_off64_t is history.

All places having used it were replaced to use off_t.
