/* For the record: with SYSLOG_NAMES <syslog.h> defines
 * (not declares) the following:
typedef struct _code {
	/*const*/ char *c_name;
	int c_val;
/*const*/ CODE prioritynames[] = {
    { "alert", LOG_ALERT },
    { NULL, -1 }
/* same for facilitynames[] */

/* This MUST occur only once per entire executable,
 * therefore we can't just do it in syslogd.c and logger.c -
 * there will be two copies of it.
 * We cannot even do it in separate file and then just reference
 * prioritynames[] from syslogd.c and logger.c - bare <syslog.h>
 * will not emit extern decls for prioritynames[]! Attempts to
 * emit "matching" struct _code declaration defeat the whole purpose
 * of <syslog.h>.
 * For now, syslogd.c and logger.c are simply compiled into
 * one object file.

/* musl decided to be funny and it implements these as giant defines
 * of the form: ((CODE *)(const CODE []){ ... })
 * Which works, but causes _every_ function using them
 * to have a copy on stack (at least with gcc-6.3.0).
 * If we reference them just once, this saves 150 bytes.
 * The pointers themselves are optimized out
 * (no size change on uclibc).
