	Under 'Noncanonical Mode Input Processing' man 4 termios refers
	to 'values of the MIN and TIME members of the c_cc array'.
	This is a neat trick as MIN & TIME do not exist - they should be
	All other entries in the c_cc array are special characters where
	index_name == special character prefixed by V.
	VMIN & VTIME are different - there is no corresponding MIN & TIME
	'character'. Even if there were the above refers to the 'members
	of the c_cc array' which would mean the Vxxx form.

	Try to code without thinking through that MIN and TIME are pretty
	lousy names to give #defines in a system include :)
	s/([^V])(MIN|TIME)/\1V\2/g the man page.
