So we have to write

attribute name __genl_const;

To me that's OK, I'll try to keep it in mind.

Can we do some "#ifdef" type syntax in spatch on the version of it? :-)

I guess I could also have two different versions of the patch and write
some code to pick up which one to use, but that's a bit awkward ...

But let me know if you can't actually fix this (easily), then I can do
that instead.
