Thanks for the bug, Szabolcs. I'll correct it, and also add the header.
Not sure why you get an error for SA_NODEFER though. It compiles for me 
just fine with gcc version 4.6.1 (Debian 4.6.1-5) .
Note that alloc.c still crashes. I didn't know why yet ( possibly 
something very bad ;-) ). Same for setuid.c, which hangs. If you could 
find the reason for those two bugs, that would be awesome and I'd be 
very grateful. If not, I'll do it once I finish this darned generator.

Well it is used more, I don't know about a convention... I do like %i 
better (though I was taught %d - hence the omissions). The reason why I 
like %i is that it implies the integer type. And that's what i have in 
If you want me to change all %i to %d across all files, i can do that :-/
