So?  The compiler would see something like

        extern linkage_spec rename(...);

        extern int pgrename(...);

        #define rename  pgrename

so the conflict of linkage spec shouldn't bother anything.

The conflict would still exist.  AFAICS it's pure chance that it's
not affecting any backend modules at the moment.
