Oh, and I realized that I need to add another


around the whole parse_devinfo() function too, since otherwise the
compile will fail with any libdivecomputer version that doesn't define
the 'dc_field_devinfo_t' type.

But other than that, I'm actually using this all now, and the EON
Steel profiles are now part of the dive logs I maintain..

I will have to add some event parsing (and turn the ceiling and tts
data into events too, for that matter), but the basics all work.
Supporting things like synchronizing the time or even changing the
configurable screens is a whole different matter. That's going to take
a lot more effort.
