Thanks for this, too.  It's probably not important in the case of this 
small patch, but for larger things, certainly good to know.  Of 
course, in case you submit entirely new files, please add your name as 
the author on top then.

It's old enough. ;-)

We usually tend to not abandon older compiler versions (which might not 
yet understand __flash) very quickly.  Of course, release 2.0 would 
have been an occasion to abandon these versions, but we didn't.

For the test bench, it would be OK though to use __flash, as it is not 
intended to be used by "end customers".

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