As you know, the name "linux" in those files means that the files are
only compiled on GNU/Linux systems.  The files in os and crypto are
copied from the master library in the gc repository.  Those names are
not going to change.  The file syscall/errstr_linux.go is specific to
gccgo, and that name could change easily enough.

Making those changes is fine.

Yes, I'm sorry that this never gets high enough on my list for a serious review.

The best way to contribute to gccgo is to use the process described at
https://golang.org/doc/gccgo_contribute.html.  That explains how to
send changes to Gerrit in a way that is easy for me to review and
apply (Gerrit is itself free software).  You are much more likely to
get a response if you are able to follow that approach.
