           Summary: extra backslashes in RB_PROTOTYPE
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.7p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Miscellaneous
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: Jan.Pechanec at Sun.COM

The RB_PROTOTYPE macro in usr/src/cmd/ssh/include/sys-tree.h has a
backslash on the last line of the macro. This backslash is not needed,
and it's a maintenance hazard. If somebody puts non-null text on the
line following the macro, it will get sucked into the macro definition.
This looks particularly easy to get tripped up by, because the last
line of the macro is blank.

this issue is documented in OpenSolaris bug database as 6368560:
