[fpc-devel] Generic List in Advanded record does not compile with -MobjFPC, works with -MDelphi (perhaps related to Generics.Collections that I am using)

Argh, soory, cut & waste error, this is the correct thing:

   TSpecialFunctionRegister = record
     name: String;
     device: String;
     address: longWord;
     bits: TList<TSpecialFunctionBits>;
     constructor create(theName: String; theAddress: longWord);
