asm.h/preprocessor macros vs. ANSI

It seems to me that most (all?) standard RTEMS ASM macros in cpukit/score/<cpu>/asm.h are not ANSI compliant:

For example cpukit/score/m68k/asm.h contains this:
/* ANSI concatenation macros. */

#define CONCAT1(a, b) CONCAT2(a, b)
#define CONCAT2(a, b) a ## b

/* Use the right prefix for global labels. */


/* Use the right prefix for registers. */




D/L the file from the attachment and try to compile it for the m68k.

# m68k-rtems4.7-gcc -o gaga.i -P gaga.c
gaga.c:22:8: pasting "%" and "foo" does not give a valid preprocessing token
gaga.c:22: error: parse error before '%' token

This kind of errors occur when compiling *.S files from BSPs that have been converted to using automake compilation rules. "non-automade" BSPs use custom compliation rules/flags and get away without this problem showing up.
