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.
