Some doubts on cpukit/libcsupport/src/no_posix.c

  1. no posix.c uses

int _kill_r( pid_t pid, int sig ),

newlib's reent.h wants
int _kill_r( struct _reent *ptr, pid_t pid, int sig )

As _kill_r doesn't do anthing useful, this conflict probably
doesn't have any effect.

  1. _kill_r in no_posix.c is defined unconditionally, while

most *_r-functions in general are newlib specific.

_kill_r is not meaningful if not using newlib, so .. this also probably doesn't have any effect.

  1. no_posix.c includes <sys/reent.h>.

IMO, this is bogus, no_posix.c should include <reent.h> instead to get the prototypes of the *_r functions from newlib.

  1. the prototype of _getpid_r in no_posix.c doesn't match with newlib's in reent.h.
