The Hurd port of the GNU C Library defines an error code macro called
`ED', which the glibc manual describes as "The experienced user will
know what is wrong.". This error code macro doesn't seem to be used

Although having a reserved, generic error code macro might be useful(?),
`ED' is a very generic identifier. For example, clang uses it in many
parts of its code, which makes the build fail on GNU/Hurd. I think it's
likely that we'll meet this problem more than once.

Couldn't it be renamed to something less generic?
