Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH 3/3] hivex: Replace non-portable ENOKEY constant

Do you mean that my patch was incomplete because I did not also change
the documentation? Or do you mean that it can't be changed at all?

Apparently, ENOKEY is not defined on FreeBSD either. Debian's
kfreebsd-*[1][2] and hurd-i386[3] autobuilders refused to build because
of this. And it was mentioned on this list that Cygwin doesn't define
ENOKEY, either.

If hivex can't be used on MacOSX and Cygwin without patches, this is
going to be a pity for those users who want to use it for computer
forensics purposes.
