<address@hidden>, though I doubt they'll do that kind of changes for
existing products.

That's beyond the goal of avr-libc: avr-libc wants to provide what the
datasheet tells you.  As such, we don't blindly follow datasheet changes.
For instance, if a later datasheet revision changes a name that was
prviously named differently, but the original doesn't conflict with
anything else, we usually keep both names.  However, establishing a kind
of compatibility layer is beyond the scope of the project.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
