Errno.h symbols

Hi, I need to look at a recent copy of /usr/include/errno.h from AIX 7.2 to check some symbols. In particular, I'm curious if it defines EOWNERDEAD and ENOTRECOVERABLE. Can someone who has access to 7.2 please check for me? Thanks!

Just to update, I edited the file in question to define the symbols. On my AIX 7.1 box this is need to make gcc compile code with C++11 turned on (the default). Posting this here in case anyone else runs into this. I'm using gcc 6.3.0 from the Toolbox, for 7.1.

diff /usr/include/sys/errno.h.original /usr/include/sys/errno.h

> /* The following are needed to make C++11 work in gcc */
> #define EOWNERDEAD      133
