That is a bug in upnp, not in VLC plugins and do_ is a stupid prefix. We
are not soon done if we have to prefix every INTERNAL functions. Only
exported functions need to be prefixed.

VLC plugins do not expose their symbols unless they start with the correct
VLC magic. So this cannot be an issue unless your toolchain is broken (and
broken toolchains are also not a VLC problem).
