I don't think these will go in.

I had tried to do this a while back and met some resistance so I dropped it:


If the data sheets says USART, the rule has been that the io*.h file should 
say that too.

In my opion, I agree with you and would rather see all the SIG_* names be 
more consistent across all devices. Since the signal names already have 
differences from those given in the datasheets, it's already unlikely that a 
user can infer a signal from the interrupt vector tables in the datasheets 
and since we can't have the compiler check for an incorrect name, the user 
is likely to end up with a broken program.
