Some time ago we added support for C11 keywords to <sys/cdefs.h>,                                                   
meaning we can already use some of the most interesting C11 features,                                               
even with older compilers.                                                                                          
I am considering backporting this work to FreeBSD 9, only if it doesn't                                             
break (too many) stuff. The reason for this is that it allows people to                                             
write code on HEAD and safely merge it to 9 later on, without                                                       
potentially breaking the build because of this.                                                                     
Is there a chance you folks can test the following patch for me?                                                    
Please make sure you apply this patch to stable/9 r231289 or later.
