Some applications are getting duplicate symbol definitions for getreent(). One of the examples-v2 programs is doing this. It is because there are two bodies for this method -- one from confdefs.h and another from newlib. addresses the issues and needs to be incorporated by the RSB. is a cleanup that was spotted at the same time. It can be picked up by a newlib snapshot.

Milestone: 4.12.0

This needs to be fixed for 4.12. I haven't checked if this is also needed for 4.11. If 4.11 confdefs.h defines getreent(), then it has the bug also.
