Nack. The QEMU way of handling host peculiarities is to add wrappers,
for example qemu_timersub in this case, and converting all callers.

That's one way how things can be handled.

I know at least one QEMU maintainer who does not like
those workarounds, especially if they are needed because
of w32/w64 operating systems, so I decided to choose
a different approach here. My approach also can be easily
removed as soon as MinGW is improved (I'm sure it will
be improved).

There is another QEMU way of handling host peculiarities:
conditional compilation. Most of this kind of handling
could be eliminated by my approach.

Isn't include_next an extension by GCC?

It is, but that's not critical given the fact that QEMU does not
work without gcc.

If needed, this dependency can be fixed easily by renaming
the intermediate include files (and including the renamed files).

I don't think that those intermediate files will be needed
forever, so a clean and cheap solution like the one which
I implemented seems to be more important to me.

+#ifndef timersub
+/* This is a copy from GNU C Library (GNU LGPL 2.1), sys/time.h. */
+# define timersub(a, b, result) \ + do { \ + (result)->tv_sec = (a)->tv_sec - (b)->tv_sec; \ + (result)->tv_usec = (a)->tv_usec - (b)->tv_usec; \ + if ((result)->tv_usec < 0) { \ + --(result)->tv_sec; \ + (result)->tv_usec += 1000000; \ + } \
+  } while (0)

By the way: it's not possible to add timersub to existing files like
oslib-win32.c or os-win32.c (another way to handle the problem)
because of incompatible licenses.
