That's a moot point. avr-libc-1.0 is bound to gcc-3.3.x. The patch for
gcc shouldn't go into the 3.3 branch at this point. Having those
macros defined is broken under the current implementation. We can
bring them back in the 1.1 cycle if gcc-3.4 includes the patch which
means we bump the major version number to 2 and bind avr-libc-2.0 to
