For obvious reasons this shim cannot exist. If the structure member is
not visible anymore (and might not actually look the way you think it
does), you cannot provide structure definitons that magically give you
access to the members again.
Also, you do not need to maintain a forest of #ifdef - as soon as you
switch the code to only use accessor functions, the only #ifdef you
have is "one for the whole shim" or possibly "one per compat accessor
function" - nicely encapsulated away from the code using the accessor.
