Description

CONFIGURE_LIBIO_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS probably should not mention LIBIO as that is an internal component/organization aid which should not be visible to the user.

This ticket is to discuss renaming CONFIGURE_LIBIO_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS to just CONFIGURE_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS.

Perhaps deprecate now and obsolete in next major version. Include code to warn and map old name to new.

Thoughts?

I like CONFIGURE_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS better, however, do we really want to tinker with this configuration option which is used probably in hundreds of application configurations? It will probably force users to do something like this

#if RTEMS_VERSION >= 5
#define CONFIGURE_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS X
#else
#define CONFIGURE_LIBIO_MAXIMUM_FILE_DESCRIPTORS X
#endif
