[avr-libc-dev] RFC: deprecate INTERRUPT, and replace it by something les

As many users seem to run into constant confusion about the use of
INTERRUPT, and tend to use it when they are rather supposed to use
SIGNAL instead (either because they didn't read the documentation, or
because they didn't notice the difference when reading it), I propose
that we deprecate INTERRUPT, and rename it to something that is less
probable of causing confusion.

If we deprecate it now, the next major stable release line (1.4.x)
could already remove it.  There are probably only very few legitimate
users of INTERRUPT, so requesting them to change their code upon the
next major release doesn't appear undue to me.


Suggestions about the new name?  Maybe SIGNAL_SEI?
