When preprocessing the file vsprintf.c, macro 'va_arg' gets expanded into '__builtin_va_arg', which is not XEN code.

For instance, at line 317 of that file,

   field_width = va_arg(args,int);


   field_width = __builtin_va_arg(args,int);

using the preprocessing command below.

cpp -C -E -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -I.../xen-3.0.1/xen/include -I.../xen-3.0.1/xen/include/asm-x86/mach-generic -I.../xen-3.0.1/xen/include/asm-x86/mach-default -DNDEBUG -D__i386__ vsprintf.c

The def inition of macro va_arg is located in file acenv.h:298, but has little to do with this result.
Settings: Compiler: gcc 4.0.2, OS: Ubuntu Linux kernel

What might be the reason of this behavior? A bug in gcc?
