MPS issue job003870

TitleCan't set MPS_KEY_SPARE
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf you try to set MPS_KEY_SPARE for an MVFF pool as described in the manual [1]:

    MPS_ARGS_ADD(args, MPS_KEY_SPARE, 0.75);

Then the compilation fails with:

    apss.c:169:5: error: expected identifier
        MPS_ARGS_ADD(args, MPS_KEY_SPARE, 0.75);
AnalysisThis is because mps.h says

    #define MPS_KEY_SPARE_FIELD double

when it should say

    #define MPS_KEY_SPARE_FIELD d

The mistake was made in change 184498 [2]. The error would have been caught immediately if the feature had been tested, but the absence of a test case wasn't spotted when the feature was merged to the master sources.
