Since some time syslinux did not compile anymore on RH7 or EL2 (somewhere
between 2.11 and 3.09), I looked today what made the build fail and a
duplicate definition in the term_state/default_state structure definition
breaks the old gcc.

Not sure if there is a simple way to fix this so it can still be compiled ?

Thanks in advance,
